Vizeum appoints Richard Hale general manager

The Dentsu Aegis Network keeps shaking things up, with the latest move coming in the shape of Richard Hale, who has been promoted from agency director to general manager of Vizeum.

Hale joined the group three years ago as a business director before being promoted to agency director in 2015.

The general manager position is a newly created position, which has come about in response to strong growth for the agency.

Vizeum recently won the Fletcher Building and H&M accounts, and has been recognised by RECMA as the fastest growing media agency in the nation.

In addition to these accounts, Vizeum also has Red Bull, Pernod Ricard, Shiseido, DKSH and Nissan penned into the ledger. 

Dentsu Aegis chief executive Rob Harvey say Hale's strong performance over the last few years made him the obvious choice for the leadership role.

"Richard has done an outstanding job leading the charge with Vizeum over the past couple of years, helping the business go from strength to strength,” Harvey says. "I know that under Richard’s leadership the agency will continue to grow at pace whilst still providing clients with the market leading capability that Vizeum has become known for.”

Hale's appointment is effective immediately.
