FCB Media has appointed media investment specialist David Turner to the new role of head of investment for FCB Media; he also becomes a member of the agency’s leadership team.

Turner joins FCB Media at the start of October from OMD where he was group investment director. He has over 15 years’ agency experience, has worked across a range of sectors and clients including McDonald’s, Sky TV, and Frucor, and developed a range of investment initiatives and opportunities for clients while extracting maximum value.

Prior to OMD he held media investment roles at MEC New Zealand, Rapp UK and Universal McCann New Zealand.

Reporting to the managing director, the role will oversee the media agency’s investment and partnership programme, focusing on maximising client outcomes through market insight and business-level partnerships.

FCB Media MD Rufus Chuter says he is excited about Turner’s arrival and the expertise he will bring to an increasingly complex media landscape. “I’m delighted to have someone with David’s experience and reputation join the team,” he said.

“Providing impartial market insight has never been more important, nor have publisher and technology partnerships that create client business value. David’s desire to move beyond legacy industry models and shape a fresh approach fitted with our vision so we’re all looking forward to his arrival.”

David Turner said: “I’m extremely excited about the opportunity this new role presents. FCB Media is New Zealand’s most awarded media agency and one which continues to produce exceptional work. They have an amazing client base, fantastic people, and I can’t wait to join the team.”
