Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN) has promoted Erik Hallander to CEO of Isobar Australia, following the exit of Konrad Spilva earlier this year.

Hallander has been managing director of the digital agency since 2017 and now oversees its Australia and New Zealand operations.

“Erik is one of the most intelligent and creative people I’ve had the pleasure of working with,” says DAN AUNZ CEO Henry Tajer.

“He’s a true change-maker, and the calibre of leader we need to continue transforming our clients’ businesses, brands and people's lives with the creative use of digital.”

Hallander has more than 20 years’ experience, including more than a decade with Isobar.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of the next chapter of Isobar and Dentsu,” Hallander says.

“The experience leading this agency to date has been one of the best in my career, and everyone at Isobar and DAN is to thank for that. It’s an incredible business to be a part of, that consistently delivers fantastic value for our client partners.”

His appointment comes following DAN’s acquisition of New Zealand-based technology and business consultancy Davanti Consulting and the rebranding of digital agency Little Giant to Isobar New Zealand.
