Facebook Australia has appointed Melissa Verner Green to lead its Victorian operations as head of Melbourne.
Verner Green, a senior media executive with over 20 years’ experience, joined Facebook earlier this year as head of Facebook’s Melbourne agency relationship team. Her new responsibility as Facebook’s head of Melbourne expands her role to overseeing the company’s total operations in the market, across both Facebook and Instagram.
Another key Facebook hire into the Melbourne team is former DDB Melbourne planning director Tom Hyde who joined Facebook a month ago as the newly created role of creative agency partner. Hyde’s national role sees him liaise and co-create with creative agencies to help brands get the most out of Facebook and Instagram.
