The Marketing Academy launches new 'Alumni Program' with IAG signing on as founding partner

Saatchi_BSmart_164BWcu1-thumb-400x267-134527-thumb-350x233-242893.jpgThe Marketing Academy has today announced that general insurer IAG, the parent company of NRMA Insurance and CGU, has signed-on as the founding partner of its newly launched Alumni Program.

The Marketing Academy Alumni is made up of 90 hand-picked leaders who have graduated from the Academy's highly respected Scholarship Program. An Alumni council has been convened to represent the Alumni and provide support for members. The council will ensure that Marketing Academy Alumni and Scholars continue to assist and nurture one another, and have access to ongoing learning, mentoring and coaching.
IAG will be providing the Marketing Academy with funding, resources and mentoring support for the Alumni Program.

Says Brent Smart (pictured above), chief marketing officer, IAG: "The Marketing Academy provides Australia's best and brightest marketing and media talent with world class mentoring, coaching and learning opportunities.

"We're proud to play a part in enabling the Marketing Academy to support the long-term development and growth of its graduates through the new Alumni Program."

The Marketing Academy is a not-for-profit organisation and as such relies on the generosity of the industry to support its endeavour to turn the marketing talent of today into the leaders of tomorrow.

According to TMA Alumni chairman, Sergio Brodsky, the support from IAG has provided the Marketing Academy with the opportunity to provide continuity to such a brilliant program. This does not mean fundraising efforts are over. Organisations aligned with TMA's vision and values are certainly encouraged to approach the alumni council to discuss partnership opportunities.

TMA's Alumni council is made up by:
• Sergio Brodsky (Chairman), Head of Strategy at Initiative
• Nathan Wilson, (Vice-Chairman), Head of Marketing at Microsoft
• Justin Taylor, Head of Marketing Communication & Brand at Simplot
• Jo McAlister, Marketing Consultant
• Liz Kaelin, Entrepreneur
• David Griffith, Managing Director
• Paul Den, Partner at Banter
• Ruth Taylor, Senior Brand Manager at Yum Brand
• Arron Child, Head of Neuromarketing at Studio Etch
