Lambley takes up the new position with almost 20 years experience in the corporate communications space, representing brands in Australia and across Asia Pacific.

She joined N2N Communications in November 2018.

Publicis Groupe ANZ CEO, Michael Rebelo, said Lambley had proven herself as the right person for the job during her time with N2N.

“I’m excited to welcome Skye to her new role leading one of the most-awarded PR agency groups in the country. Since Skye joined us, she has proven to be a trusted advisor to our clients and a passionate leader to our people. Her collaborative spirit and adaptability within our Groupe makes her the perfect leader for our PR business.

“Skye’s promotion is a testament to the strong talent pool within our business. At Publicis Groupe, our fully-integrated PR offering is an important part of the diverse marketing and communications services that we are constantly evolving to help our clients navigate through the ever-changing business and consumer landscape.”

On Liell’s departure, Rebelo said: “Vanessa is a highly-regarded leader who over the years has championed excellence and integrity in Australia’s communications industry. She has also played an integral role in building Herd MSL’s market-leading reputation. I’d like to thank Vanessa for her contribution to the growth of the business, and wish her and her family the best of luck for the future.”

Lambley said: “Over the last 15 months, I’ve been lucky enough to work with a hugely talented, energetic and entrepreneurial group of communications professionals. I’m extremely proud to be leading this team and am so excited for what’s ahead for us and the clients that we work with.”

Liell said: “After 14 years, I’m delighted to transition our ‘Agency of the Year’ to the next generation of leaders, and congratulate the brilliant Skye Lambley on her appointment as Group MD. I’ve been fortunate to have an incredible, challenging and rewarding career with Herd MSL and Publicis; and the privilege to learn from such a talented, ambitious, fun and kind group of people in our group and industry. Thank you to our many clients, teams and colleagues who have been so significant in Herd MSL’s journey to now and our very successful future with Publicis.”
