Lisa Ronson is the new CMO of health insurer Medibank, AdNews confirmed.

She replaces Fiona Le Broq from July 22

"Lisa's extensive experience and proven track record in building strong consumer brands and leading high-performing teams will be invaluable as we continue to enhance our customer engagement and drive growth," said Medibank chief customer officer Milosh Milisavljevic. 
"Her innovative approach and leadership will undoubtedly help us achieve our goals and unlock the potential of our people."
Ronson said she is excited to be joining the Medibank team.


"It has quite honestly been a lovely process of getting to know the team I will be working so closely with," Ronson wrote on LinkedIn.

"The company and brand ticks all of my key boxes - great people, culture and a purpose that is truly embraced across the entire business.....'the best health and well being for Australia'.

"I can't wait to meet the rest of the team when I start on 22 July."

Ronson left Coles as CMO in 2022 after more than three years to "pursue external career interests". 

Prior she held back to back marketing leadership roles for over 25+years, including Tourism Australia and Westpac. During that time off she focused on her many non-executive positions.

She told AdNews, in an interview with Simon Hadfield, that it was nice to come up for air.

"I’ve had several really big jobs on the hop – TA, DJs, Telstra, Visa and Coles during Covid," she said

"Up until now, the longest break I’ve taken was 12 weeks maternity leave almost 21 years ago now. I do not recommend taking only 12 weeks mat leave, by the way.

"After we moved to Melbourne four years ago for Coles, we bought a farm up near Daylesford so it’s been a big desire of mine to spend more time up here. It’s just a beautiful area in a wonderful community of creative and interesting people."
