Of his new role, Layton said: “There’s never been a more exciting time to be in audio. Across podcasts and radio, smart speakers and streaming, I can’t wait to help brands take advantage of the rapidly growing and emerging opportunities.”

Layton will be based in ARN’s Melbourne office and will commence his role on May 20.
