Madeleine Marsh

Client Partner at Meta

Passionate about brands and creativity delivering commercial results I have step-changed businesses through a relentless push for growth and possibility.

Customer centric I spent 17 years driving growth through world class effective and award-winning ideas across a broad range of businesses (with depth of experience in FMCG and financial services) in Australia, Europe and the UK at creative agencies such as Leo Burnett and Clemenger BBDO.

Curious about the future of our industry and keen to build my tech, commercial and innovation experience I’ve spent the past 2.5 years as a Client Partner in Financial Services at Meta. I love the fast pace, high performance culture of Meta which feels like a natural home for my infectious energy and provides endless opportunities to think about the box solving problems using creativity in all its forms.

Outside of marketing I’m committed to being a strong female role model in our industry (and for my own two boys) and am passionate about nurturing females in our industry which I’ve has done formally and informally, in many guises.

I’m beyond delighted to take part in the inaugural program of asisterhood in NSW as believe first and foremost that our industry is about and fuelled by extraordinary people.
