Noilea-Tani began her career in 2005 with MEC – Wavemaker’s previous incarnation – as a media assistant, before becoming TV buyer and most recently acting as Sydney trading director.

“In her 14-year career at MEC and now Wavemaker, Philippa has clearly demonstrated her technical investment excellence, how she builds absolute client trust and confidence, her strong media vendor relationships, her unrelenting passion for our business, and most importantly her complete dedication to mentoring, developing and leading highly motivated investment teams,” said Peter Vogel, CEO of Wavemaker Australia and New Zealand.

“There is no one better to take our investment practice to even greater heights.

“We’re also big believers in promoting from within at Wavemaker – it not only rewards talented and committed people such as Philippa for their hard work, it also benefits our clients by ensuring continuity and the retention of valuable IP.”

Wavemaker stated Noilea-Tani has significant market knowledge, having worked across entertainment, FMCG, retail, communications, insurance, pharmaceuticals, finance and government.

“I am so proud of what the Wavemaker investment team has achieved over the past 12 months. To be given the opportunity to continue developing my career at Wavemaker is incredibly motivating,” Noilea-Tani said of her new role.

“I look forward to working more closely with our interstate teams and together as a national investment team, delivering even stronger work for our clients.”
