Dentsu Aegis Network has promoted Melbourne-based Dentsu Mitchell managing director Adrian Roeling to the role of President, Amplifi Australia & New Zealand.

In his new role, Roeling will lead Amplifi ANZ and its constituent parts including the investment team, product and partnerships team, Amnet (programmatic) and The Story Lab (premium entertainment content).

He will now lead Amplifi into its next phase, as it grows from 100 to a predicted 300 people. He will report to Melbourne-based DAN ANZ ceo Simon Ryan, who will also assume executive responsibility of Dentsu Mitchell until global search for a new leader is completed.

Ryan said: “This is a significant appointment for Adrian and for the group, giving recognition to his commitment to several transformational projects, including the rebranding of Mitchells, Dentsu Mitchell and the centralisation of our media investment teams into Amplifi.”

Adrian Roeling said, “I’ve worked in the media industry through some of its most significant transformations and I know there are many more exciting changes to come. There has never been a better time to take up the mantle as President of Amplifi and I am proud to be leading the team responsible for making the most of these opportunities.”
