Wavemaker Australia has promoted Philippa Noilea-Tani (feature image) to the role of national dead of investment, charged with leading the agency’s trading and investment strategy across all four Wavemaker offices.
She steps into the role vacated by Claire Butterworth, who is moving to GroupM sister agency MediaCom as chief investment officer.
Wavemaker AUNZ CEO Peter Vogel (feature image) said: “In her 14-year career at MEC and now Wavemaker, Philippa has clearly demonstrated her technical investment excellence, how she builds absolute client trust and confidence, her strong media vendor relationships, her unrelenting passion for our business, and most importantly her complete dedication to mentoring, developing and leading highly motivated investment teams.
“We’re also big believers in promoting from within at Wavemaker – it not only rewards talented and committed people such as Philippa for their hard work, it also benefits our clients by ensuring continuity and the retention of valuable IP.”
Noilea-Tani added: “I am so proud of what the Wavemaker Investment team has achieved over the past 12 months. To be given the opportunity to continue developing my career at Wavemaker is incredibly motivating.
“I look forward to working more closely with our interstate teams and together as a national investment team, delivering even stronger work for our clients.”
