iiNet holds on to OMD

16 March 2015

iiNet has once again appointed OMD WA as its media consultancy following a competitive tender process that saw a select group of national agencies pitch for the account.

OMD WA has worked with iiNet for more than two years and in that time they've established a strong awareness of all iiNet brands, including iiNet, Internode and Adam Internet, and their respective customer bases.

Maryna Fewster, iiNet's Chief Operating Officer, said the Internet Service Provider is looking forward to continuing its strong working relationship with OMD WA.

"We've worked with OMD for a couple of years now and have complete confidence in their new leadership team," said Maryna.

"Angela Nutton, who assumed responsibility for the iiNet account in 2014, is now Managing Director of OMD and has brought a new level of commitment and innovation to our account. She leads a team who really deliver and we look forward to further strengthening our brand presence around the country as we continue to grow as a business."

John Driscoll, Executive Chairman of Marketforce, of which OMD WA is part, said the appointment reflects how a local partnership has achieved big things on a national scale.

"We are thrilled to be continuing our partnership with iiNet and look forward to working together to forge strong media relationships to help drive business success in the years ahead," said John.
