Venessa Hunt has been promoted to digital strategy and investment officer alongside Liesa Newland who has been promoted to head of trading intelligence.
Hunt’s remit is to lead the group’s digital direction. She will continue to work closely with all GroupM agencies and our media industry partners to develop solutions built on trends and technologies that play a transformational role in consumers’ lives to meet our clients’ objectives and give them a competitive advantage.
Both appointments are effective immediately. Hunt and Newland will also sit on the GroupM leadership team and report to Nicola Lewis, GroupM Australia chief investment officer. They will work alongside Fahad Bashir, head of compliance and pricing, who joined in June from GroupM Indonesia where he was chief investment officer.
At the same time, Finecast managing director Brett Poole and Xaxis managing director Imran Masood (pictured below), have also joined the GroupM Leadership team.
