Martin Harkin returns to Aus as MD of TEAM LEWIS Australia
Global marketing agency, TEAM LEWIS has appointed Martin Harkin as Managing Director of its Australian business. He returns to Sydney after three-and-a-half years based in New York, most recently as Senior Vice President, Global Head of Business Development at Method Communications.
Martin is tasked with growing the agency's footprint in the Australian market, driving closer integration with the company’s APAC and global offices, with a focus on diversifying the range of dedicated services expertise across the team. "I see so much potential for TEAM LEWIS in Australia, which is what made the decision to return to Sydney a no-brainer," he said. "The combination of the talent levels of the local team, backed by the expert services of our APAC and wider global teams, means the agency couldn't be better positioned for rapid growth.
"My goal over the next three years is to help realise this potential and evolve TEAM LEWIS Australia into an integrated marketing powerhouse to be reckoned with across the country."
Martin began his career in journalism before making the switch into the world of PR. Since then, he's worked across a range of sectors and disciplines, including social media, media buying and marketing, analyst relations, and creative, while moving between the Australian, United Kingdom and North American markets.
