The AMAA board of directors has welcomed Chris Nolan, COO of Publicis Media Australia & New Zealand, to the role of chair. Nolan has served on the board for more than 18 months, representing advertising and media agencies.
Nolan’s appointment to the role of chair endorses the AMAA’s focus on accountability and transparency across the industry. Nolan has more than 25 years’ experience in the media, advertising and communications industry, with previous senior roles within Publicis Media and formerly Mitchell & Partners, Stadia Media and Prime Television.
Also joining the board in the last month are Lyndall Campher from L’Oréal Australia and New Zealand, and Ashley Earnshaw from Carat Australia.
In welcoming the new chair and new directors, AMAA chief executive officer Josanne Ryan commented: “It’s important for the AMAA board to effectively represent the industry as the body continues extending its focus towards accountability and transparency in the current market. The high level of experience and knowledge the new board members bring ensures the AMAA is better positioned to support all members, including agencies, publishers and clients, in an increasingly complex ad trading marketplace.”
