Media Federation of Australia (MFA) executive director Carol Morris has stepped down after a decade in the role.
Morris will take up a part-time consulting role to the MFA.
The MFA said it is currently looking for a CEO.
The media agency body said her achievements included the launch of a worldwide first youth development program NGen, ongoing efforts in talent and education, working with tertiary bodies to attract talent, and establishing the MFA graduate programme.
Henry Tajer, executive chairman of Mediabrands Australia and current president of the MFA said: "Carol has been a driving force that the MFA has had the privilege of having over the past 10 years.
"Many of the MFA's achievements have Carol's fingerprints all over them. I would like to thank Carol for her passion, dedication and commitment to the MFA and its members and we look forward to her continued involvement in the future.”
Morris’ media career began in Perth. She moved to Sydney in 1991 and was group media manager at Merchant & Partners, managing key accounts such as Ansett, KFC and MLC. After three years, Morris moved to Universal McCann where she was client service director and general manager for nine years.
