The AANA has appointed a new general manager of marketing as part of two senior leadership changes at the association.

Lucy McKee (pictured) joins from Telstra, where she spent the last five years in the corporate marketing team as senior marketing manager, with responsibility for the PR and communications of the Telstra Business Awards and Telstra Business Women’s Awards.

She joins the AANA from 2 March and replaces Rachelle Gibson, who will leave the organisation in mid-March.

“Lucy brings with her extensive experience across B2B marketing, PR and stakeholder liaison within the media and communications industry and will be an excellent addition to the team,” AANA CEO, Sunita Gloster, said.

The AANA has also appointed Simone Brandon as its new director of policy and regulatory affairs. She joins the association from Vodafone Hutchison Australia, where she was the deputy general counsel with a key focus on government regulation.

“Simone has demonstrated a strong grasp on the policy challenges facing the marketing industry,” Gloster said. “Simon will help us navigate the shifting media landscape ahead and demonstrate to stakeholders, particularly government, that the self-regulatory system that governs marketing communication is evolving to deliver the standards the community expects.”

Last month, the AANA also appointed Katrina Harrison as member relations manager.

Fear not: It's only a robot

Every time I pass through the automated border controls at the Sydney airport I walk away with a feeling of exasperation on the one hand and relief on the other. Exasperation, because the face recognition technology inevitably always fails to recognise me. Relief, because we seem to be safely years away from the Orwellian reality of states controlling every aspect of our lives; something the media is keenly warning us against each day.
