We are thankful for his leadership and contribution,” said Cheuk Chiang, APAC CEO, Omnicom Media Group.
“Peter has done an exceptional job in elevating OMD in Australia taking it to the number one position. OMD Australia has recently delivered fantastic results with strong growth. The talent, offering, work and innovative culture are second to none and Peter, together with strong leadership from both Australia and New Zealand, will continue to drive our high performance in the region,” added Chiang.
