In her role as general manager, Kay has led the agency’s Melbourne clients, staff and operations. Prior to that, she headed up Zenith’s Victorian Government account.

In her 25 years in the media industry, Kay has also previously worked for sister agency Starcom.

Zenith’s local CEO, Nickie Scriven, said the promotion was a well-earned one for Kay.

“At a time when our Melbourne business has doubled in size following a string of new business wins, I’m thrilled to recognise Megan’s great efforts with this well deserved promotion,” said Scriven.

“Megan has done a brilliant job leading our Melbourne office. She has recruited the best and brightest talent to work for Zenith Melbourne, setting our business up for continued growth and momentum.”

Regarding her promotion, Kay said: “It’s such an exciting time to be leading Zenith Melbourne, and I have every confidence that we have the right people, partners and technology to continue delivering amazing work for our clients in 2020 and beyond.”

Zenith’s recent client wins include Disney’s APAC account, which it won from Carat, and Kellogg’s media account. The agency also won City of Melbourne’s media account seven months ago and Rio Tinto’s media account in 2019.
