Leo Burnett Australia CEO, Emma Montgomery has announced the promotion of Kate Silver to the role of General Manager, Leo Burnett Melbourne.
The appointment sees Silver stepping up from her current role as Chief Client Partner. She will continue to play a role in leading the team across key client partnerships for brands including HBF, Vitasoy, Twinings, Transurban and City of Melbourne while focusing on evolving the agency’s core creative culture, capabilities, and services under the revitalized HumanKind operating system.
“When looking for a partner for our next stage of change, Kate was a natural choice. She has already proven herself an invaluable champion of our people, our client partners and our product, especially through this extended lockdown. Her empathy, positivity and creativity is exactly what we need as we embark on our next chapter in the Melbourne market,” said Montgomery.
Silver joined Leo Burnett Melbourne as a Group Account Director over five years ago from a marketing management role at iSelect. Before that, she held positions at AJF and TBWA. More recently, she has led several new business wins including Vitasoy, Saputo and the recent naming of Leo Burnett as national agency of record for HBF Health Insurance.
“With new leadership naturally comes new opportunities, and I’m so grateful to help lead our team with Emma at the helm. It’s a pretty exciting time to be part of Leos – we have a very clear view of where and what we want to be for our clients and I’m proud I can be part of something awesome in an agency I love,” said Silver.
