The Leading Edge lures Nigel Marsh as chairman

The Leading Edge leadership team

The former CEO of Leo Burnett and regional group CEO of Y&R Brands Australia and NZ, Nigel Marsh, is joining The Leading Edge as its chairman.

Marsh has also authored the books Fat, Forty and Fired, Overworked and Underlaid and Fit, Fifty and Fired-Up.

"Since the publication of my third book and the launch of Sydney Skinny I have been getting increasingly involved back in the corporate world with a number of consulting and coaching roles,” he said.

“It is fabulous therefore to get this opportunity to work with Matthew and the fantastic team at The Leading Edge. This represents a wonderful opportunity to get back to my branding and marketing roots, to connect with old and new colleagues and to help businesses navigate their way through complexity in order to create value."

Matthew Melhuish, CEO of Enero Group announced the leadership structure of the Leading Edge of Lee Naylor, Chrissy Blackburn and Chris Paxton following the resignation of Global CEO, Andy Bateman.

"Andy's energy, enthusiasm and larger-than-life personality will be missed by clients and staff alike and we thank him for his hard work and dedication to TLE over the past three years,” said Melhuish.

“I have no doubt that Andy will continue to do great things and we wish him all the best for his next role. Andy leaves the business in excellent hands - Lee Naylor, Chrissy Blackburn and Chris Paxton are a proven leadership team and are all outstanding practitioners with extensive Australian and international experience. It's a real coup for TLE to have attracted someone of Nigel's talent as Chairman and we look forward to him joining the team."
