Simon Ryan, the former ANZ CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network, is back in the industry with RyanCap, a digital first advertising and marketing communications company. 

Ryan left Dentsu in late 2018 after nine years with the holding group and then stepped down as managing director commerial at carsales in December last year. 

He says his new venture focuses on new economy marketing, data and technology businesses.

"Our strategy is to build a digital first advertising and marketing services business, launching our own brands as well as integrating leading businesses together," he says on LinkedIn.

"The opportunity for clients is to partner with a new locally owned entrant to the communications market place, a communications business that is built for the new economy, digitally focused and client based.

"No layers, no long approval processes, just great work and outcomes."
