The Government's newly released National Innovation and Science Agenda shows that for economic growth to continue within Australia, an 'innovation ecosystem' must be fostered, where new businesses with new ideas are encouraged to grow and flourish. With every company wanting to increase, retain or improve their customers’ experiences, this makes marketing vital to fuelling Australia's ideas boom.
Google Australia and New Zealand has appointed Procter & Gamble (P&G) boss Maile Carnegie as its new managing director.
Carnegie joined P&G straight from university and has spent more than 20 years in P&G roles in Australia, Singapore and the United States, Mumbrella reported on Thursday.
Carnegie replaces Nick Leeder, who quit the post in March to take up the role of country director for Google France.
In a BRW profile in March, Carnegie said P&G promotes from within the company, which meant she was “given the opportunities, training and tools to achieve my career goals from a very early stage in my career.”
She will start at Google on July15.
