The Advertising Federation of Australia has appointed Jo Libline from CAANZ as its new Events and Sponsorship Manager.
Jo has extensive background in events management and sponsorship development and support, and has worked extensively in the Australian and New Zealand tourism and wine industries.
Jo is currently the Events and Sponsorship Manager with CAANZ, where she produced and staged three major advertising award programmes.
“Jo has the perfect credentials for this key role within the AFA,” said new AFA Executive Director, Mark Champion, who worked with Jo while he was head of CAANZ.
“Her experience of running world-class marketing communications award programs and a plethora of industry events, as well as her ability to attract supporters and showcase their brands will be invaluable,” he said.
Prior to her role with CAANZ Jo came from the position of Trade Marketing Manager for the New Zealand operation of Tourism Australia and has headed up the Yarra Valley Tourism organisation.
She replaces Allison Barrett who left the AFA at the end of 2007.
Jo starts her new role with the AFA on February 25.
