MediaCom Australia has appointed Matthew Vogts, the managing director for MediaCom New Zealand, to the newly created role of Chief Growth Officer AUNZ.
He will move to Sydney, report to Willie Pang, MediaCom AUNZ CEO, and work alongside senior leadership teams to evolve and deepen MediaCom’s successful partnerships in the region.
Vogts: “Marketing now delivers more enterprise value than any other business function, but remains the least measurable part of the business. I'm excited to help our partners unlock this opportunity and identify new ways for marketing to drive meaningful business impact. MediaCom has some of the best minds in the industry and I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue my career with the company”
Pang: “Our success will always be determined by our ability to help clients grow. Matt is a world-class talent and I’m humbled that he has chosen to take on this critical responsibility. He will serve as an incredible advocate for clients and help us to lead the market with transformational ideas and solutions."
GroupM New Zealand CEO Chris Riley: “Matt has done an outstanding job in evolving and growing the MediaCom business in New Zealand. It’s a fantastic opportunity and a natural extension of his capabilities to take on a role that builds on this record. We’re stoked to keep a talented operator like Matt within the GroupM network.”
Vogts starts in April. MediaCom has started the search for his replacement as managing director in NZ.
