Julie Flynn has been appointed interim CEO at the Australian Association of National Advertisers (AANA).

She is a former CEO of Free TV Australia and of Freeview Australia. 

Flynn: “I look forward to working with the AANA secretariat, board and members to drive our 2021 agenda, particularly delivering an inspiring RESET conference and the continued rollout of the AANA’s high quality professional capability programmes.”

Martin Brown, chairman of the AANA: “We are thrilled to have someone of Julie’s calibre step in to lead the AANA secretariat at such an important time for the industry.

"Julie is a highly respected leader in our field and brings deep experience across the commercial, regulatory and public policy aspects of the media and advertising landscape, most notably through her roles leading Free TV and Freeview Australia.

“The AANA has had a strong start to 2021 with the latest evolution of our marketing capability programs and launch of the new Food and Beverage Code. Julie is ideally placed to help us advance our plans for the second half of the year as we search for a permanent CEO.”

The AANA has also started an extensive search for a permanent CEO to replace John Broome who chose not to renew his contract after four years.
