AMI former chief Mark Crowe joins Brand Finance Australia as CEO

He replaces Xander Bird, who has returned to the brand consultancy group's London office

Former Australian Marketing Institute (AMI) chief executive, Mark Crowe, has become the new head of Brand Finance Australia.

Crowe left the AMI in March after more than 10 years in the role. His resume includes senior management and board director positions across the professional services, education, food, hospital and sporting industries.

During his time with AMI, Crowe also contributed to several publications including the association’s The Role of Marketing in the Boardroom and What Value Marketing. He remains a fellow of the AMI.

Crowe assumed the role at Brand Finance, a brand consultancy, this month, replacing former local chief, Xander Bird, who has returned to Brand Finance's London office. He told CMO he had been consulting with the group for several months and looks forward to contributing to Brand Finance’s brand value league tables and reports as its new permanent chief.

“I am excited about the opportunity to work with leading brands on articulating and building value.”

The AMI has not yet confirmed its new CEO.

Building a human-curated brand

If the FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) sector and their measured worth are the final argument for the successful 21st Century model, then they are beyond reproach. Fine-tuning masses of algorithms to reduce human touchpoints and deliver wild returns to investors—all with workforces infinitesimally small compared to the giants of the 20th Century—has been proven out.
