On LinkedIn, Dunn wrote today: “This week marks my last at GroupM Australia & New Zealand, as I hang up my boots, it’s certainly bittersweet to leave so many incredible friends & colleagues from across the group. I’ve had an amazing six years, ten in total if you also include my first stint at Mediacom.

“Establishing GroupM #commerce has been an exciting journey, the opportunity to launch one of the first specialist e-commerce businesses in Australia, but also work with a broad range of folks & clients across WPP. We created some awesome solutions & campaigns, and built some great partnerships with the likes of Amazon, eBay, Cartology – Part of the Woolworths Group etc. My time culminated with a spot on the Cannes Lions jury for the Creative e-commerce awards – providing an amazing perspective across the best global work.

Dunn added: “It also means retirement from the Media Federation of Australia Interactive Committee. It’s been a truly valuable five years working with the digital leaders from across the industry – a great bunch and proud to have helped create & contribute to programs like the Digital Foundation Certificates and ADAPs – thanks Sophie Madden!

“With an extra long notice period, I actually finished up over a month ago but have been enjoying an amazing few weeks of gardening leave. It’s been a chance to relax, reflect and reconnect with family, friends and folks from across the industry. I have one more week to go, so let me know if you fancy a catch up – I’ll be starting the new gig next week, more details to come soon…While I’m sad to close a door on this chapter of my career, I couldn’t be more excited about the next – I’m as passionate as ever about the intersection of media and commerce!”
