Just three months after joining Carat NZ as group business director, Alex Lawson has been promoted to the general manager role, effective immediately.

“After an extensive recruitment process to identify the right candidate for the general manager position, we quickly realised that the best person for the role was already sitting within the business,” said Aegis Network New Zealand ceo Robert Harvey said.

“Alex has made an immediate impact since joining us in July so it was really easy to make the call to promote him into the GM position. Alex shares my ambition for Carat and has a real desire to grow and evolve the business to lead the market today and for the future, so I am really excited to be working alongside him.”

Alex Lawson said: “Since joining Carat I’ve been consistently impressed by the quality of its offering and that of the Dentsu Aegis Network. The quality of the team that we have locally combined with the suite of tools and resources afforded by the network gives us an unparalleled value offering to clients.

“I’m excited to be part of the collective journey we’re taking and privileged to have the opportunity to lead such a talented team.”

The agency expects to make an announcement on Lawson’s replacement as group business director shortly.

Lawson has 15 years’ experience in media and advertising, having previously held roles with ZenithOptimedia, APN News & Media, Mediaedge in NZ and MediaCom London.
