MEA structures for ongoing growth following bumper year!

Marc Edward Agency (MEA) Founder and CEO, Edward Kaleel, announced today his transition into a non-executive career.

Kaleel will take on the role of Non-Executive Chairman, providing Managing Director, Nigel Hickey, with full executive responsibilities of MEA effective 1 st December 2017.

“After starting the business in 1996, Kaleel has made the decision to step back from day to day responsibilities to better balance his focus across MEA, US business interests and
future Non-Executive positions.

“After 22 years leading MEA it’s time to hand the business running over to Nigel and his leadership team.” said Kaleel. “Recent investments in new technology, services and team members have positioned the business for an accelerated period of growth; a focussed approach from new leadership will only drive this further.”

“It’s an honour to formally take over the leadership of MEA” said Hickey. “Over the past 18 months we’ve made a strategic shift to integrate a Communications offering into the business model to complement MEA’s expertise in bringing brands to life through the use of people.” Hickey said the broadened offering has provided more effective and efficient solutions for clients, results which the agency team intend to continue to drive into the future.

MEA has retained Kevin Moore in an advisory capacity throughout the transition. Moore is currently Chairman of CROSSMARK AsiaPac, and holds several other Chairman and/or Director roles across communications businesses in Australia and Asia.
