Nicole Bence Appointed Chair of IAB Australia Board

By SEVEN, Seven West Media

Nicole Bence, Network Digital Sales Director at Seven West Media, has been appointed Chair of the IAB Australia Board, effective immediately.

Ms Bence succeeds Matt Rowley, CEO of Pedestrian Group, who has been Chair since January 2019. She has been a member of the IAB Australia Board since 2020.

As Chair, Ms Bence will work closely with IAB Australia CEO, Gai Le Roy, on initiatives and programs to address key industry matters.

It has been a delight working with Matt over the last two years driving some amazing initiatives including diversifying the board as well as significantly expanding the member base. Nicole is a passionate leader with such a strong knowledge of digital media and data, but she is also a true cross media leader. Nicole will lead the Board into what is an incredibly busy and important time for the digital advertising industry.

Gai Le Roy, IAB Australia CEO

It’s a great privilege to take on the Chair role at IAB Australia and I’m very excited to have the opportunity to build on Matt’s great work. IAB Australia’s key purpose to grow sustainable and diverse investment in digital advertising in Australia has never been more important. The digital advertising and technology ecosystem is changing rapidly and constantly, and I’m honoured to be able to play a part in its evolution and growth. One of my key priorities is to champion the power and efficacy of digital advertising. A trusted, robust and effective measurement metric, with standards that inspire confidence across the entire media and marketing sector, is critical for our industry.
