ZenithOptimedia has promoted its Melbourne general manager Leanne Brinkies to the role of Melbourne managing director, effective immediately.
Brinkies was formerly national digital director and has been with the company for seven years.
ZO chief executive Ian Perrin said: ““Leanne has done an absolutely fantastic job as GM for the past 2 years and we are delighted to be giving her additional responsibilities across the company.
“She took over the office at a difficult time, and has transformed it into an exceptional unit. This is reflected in the recent announcement of the increased remit ZenithOptimedia have taken up while retaining their spot on the Victoria Government roster.”
Brinkies said: “ZenithOptimedia were the first agency to place someone with a digital background to run an office and I am absolutely thrilled with the direction we have taken and that we are providing our clients with progressive integrated solutions.
“I have the pleasure of leading a great bunch of talented people who have been instrumental in the success we have had this year. I am excited to be working with Ian and the executive team to drive the agency to our goal of being Australia’s first truly open agency.”
