RT Health hires a new CMO

Former agency leader says moving to client side brand leadership position will be challenging

After a short sabbatical and a career in agencies, Adam Lee has become the first chief marketing and commercial officer at RT Health Fund.

Lee said he was attracted to the role because, after a career in agency roles, this provided something very different and, quite frankly, challenging.

“Going client side will be a big learning curve for me, and I am excited by that,” he said.

Lee previously held roles as managing director at McCann, group head at Whybin TBWA, and business director at Ogilvy & Mather.

“After taking a much needed break from over 20 years of continuous work, I’m really happy to be starting the new year with RT Health Fund,” he said.

“Founded by a handful of progressive thinking railway workers way back in 1889, RT is Australia’s first registered health fund. It is a not-for-profit organisation that works solely for the benefit and care of its members. I immediately liked its story, heritage, values and purpose.

“I’m also excited to be working with RT’s team of talented executives led by CEO, Simone Tregeagle.”

Sport and sponsorship: The value of event sponsorship

Australia’s cricketers captured the nation’s attention during their recent run to the semi-final of the ICC Men’s World Cup. While the tournament ultimately ended in defeat, for over a month it provoked a sense of belonging, hope and empowerment for millions of people across Australia. Cricket, and sport in general, has a near-unique ability to empower individuals, irrelevant of their background, demographic or nationality.
