Brinkies has headed the Melbourne division of ZO since September 2012 and before that was digital director for the agency, first in Sydney and then nationally.

“Leanne has achieved a great deal at ZenithOptimedia during a career that has covered a large number of roles. This has included being national head of digital, and her current managing director role. We thank her for her hard work and dedication and wish her all the best in the future”, said Ian Perrin, CEO of ZenithOptimedia.National chief operating office Andrew Sherman will oversee the office until a replacement is named.

Most importantly though, I am genuinely pleased with the work that has been delivered out of the Melbourne office and the impact my digital skills have had on it. I am going to take a break before looking forward to the next challenge in my career.”

ZO’s main Melbourne clients are Hertz, Honda, Nestle, Peters, Puma and parts of the Victorian Government account.
