Danny Bass, a former CEO of IPG Mediabrands, has been appointed chairman for UnLtd, the industry’s social purpose organisation.
Kerry McCabe, the founder and previous chairman of UnLtd, will continue to serve as a director and take on a more active role in other projects, including the launch of the organisation’s first B2C offering.
Danny Bass says he's honoured to be offered the opportunity to continue the incredible work Kerry McCabe and UnLtd
have achieved over the past 15 years.
"UnLtd continually demonstrates the impact our industry can have as a positive force for good," says Bass.
"None more so than what (CEO) Chris (Freel) and the team have delivered in 2020. Our plans for 2021 and beyond are significant and reflect how we will respond to the challenges and maximise the opportunities in front of us to continue our mission of supporting young Australians at risk.”
UnLtd was founded in 2005 by Kerry McCabe, CEO of AthletesVoice and The Roar, who saw an opportunity to harness the power and resources of the industry in addressing youth disadvantage.
