Ashley Earnshaw has been appointed as the new CEO of Vizeum Australia, effective from August 1 2019.
Vizeum has been without a CEO for some time now and was most recently led by national managing director Stephen Deane, who left the agency earlier this year, B&T can reveal.
With over 15 years’ international experience in the media and advertising industry, Earnshaw takes on this leadership position from a succession of senior roles held at Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN).
He was most recently chief investment officer for Vizeum sister agency Amplifi ANZ.
Amplifi Australia’s Investment & Solutions capability is being reintegrated back into DAN’s media brands in the coming months.
The restructuring of Amplifi has been initiated by newly appointed DAN CEO, Henry Tajer, who took the top job at the start of the year after the shock resignation of incumbent Simon Ryan.
Reporting to Tajer, Earnshaw will represent Vizeum on the DAN ANZ Board.
Tajer said: “Ash is a highly-skilled media professional. He has a great depth of experience across multiple categories, working with many blue-chip advertisers across his career.
“We are looking forward to seeing Ash leading Vizeum into its next phase of growth.”
Earnshaw added: “I’m incredibly excited to be joining the Vizeum business at such a significant time for DAN.
“I look forward to supporting the team and to drive deeper integration within the Network, whilst evolving our offering to further accelerate our clients’ growth.
“It’s a fascinating time in the industry, with an accelerated pace of change and navigating this for clients represents a superb opportunity.”
