OMD has today announced the appointment of Sharon Cookson to Managing Partner, OMD Melbourne. The appointment follows the news last month of Dianne Richardson returning to Australia to take up the position of Managing Director, OMD Melbourne.
Cookson brings over 25 years’ experience in the sector, and previously worked at OMD from 2007-12. She joins OMD from Ikon Melbourne, where she held the role of managing partner. In the new position, Cookson will join the Melbourne leadership team that includes OMD Melbourne GM Antonia Glezakos.
Aimee Buchanan, CEO of OMD Australia, said, “We are excited to have Sharon back at OMD. With the significant growth the Melbourne team has experienced, Sharon will bring an additional level of support for the team. She has extensive knowledge of the local market and I look forward to her contributing to the ongoing success of our Melbourne office.”
Cookson commented, “I’m delighted to be joining OMD, who are committed to delivering excellence across the board. I’m looking forward to working with their very talented team to add value and focus on the success of its impressive group of clients.”
Cookson commences with OMD from April 2018.
