Are you a young and ambitious media agency exec hoping to get to the next rung of your career? If so, Melbourne needs you.

Dr Mumbo couldn’t help but notice with the departure of MediaCom’s Peter Barrie there are now no less than four Melbourne media agencies without a permanent boss.

For those who weren’t keeping track the vacancies are: ZenithOptimedia who are looking for a boss after the departure of Leanne Brinkies in February, Ikon who in March moved Trudi Sampola to a national role, in May Anathea Ruys left Mindshare and then late on Friday MediaCom announced Peter Barrie was departing.

What is it about the city that makes it hard to find a Melbourne MD?
