CAANZ Appoint Simon Lendrum As President

CAANZ Appoint Simon Lendrum As President

CAANZ CEO Paul Head has this morning announced that Simon Lendrum, 

Managing Director of JWT New Zealand has been elected to the position of CAANZ 

President vacated by the retiring Sandy Moore. 

“I’m delighted that Simon has been elected by the Board to lead CAANZ. Since 

joining the Board he has made a very strong contribution to the organisation. He 

takes over at a time when what constitutes advertising becomes harder to define, 

creativity takes ever more forms, and the need for ideas is stronger than ever. 

The CAANZ team and I are looking forward to working with him more closely on the 

challenges our members face. ” said Head. 

After graduating from Cambridge University, Simon joined BMP DDB London as a 

graduate recruit working across a number of accounts such as Budweiser, Unilever 

and Vodafone. 

Following a long run of awards success for the Guardian newspaper, Simon was 

appointed to the BMP board in 2003, taking responsibility for the agency’s graduate 

recruitment and training programme. 

“CAANZ plays a vital role in ensuring a sustainable and optimistic future for all of us 

in the industry. Paul and his team are dogged in the defence of the right to advertise, 

and have been effective in ensuring that a business voice is heard by policy-makers. 

In addition, Paul has ensured the focus of our awards shows is on the contribution 

that great work makes to business success. The intern programmes and training 

opportunities developed in recent years have ensured there’s a steady flow of 

brilliant young talent entering the industry, and they are rewarded appropriately. I’m 

delighted to be part of a committed board that provides governance support to the 

great work that the CAANZ team continue to perform on behalf of us all.”

Simon attributes his resilience to his support of Newcastle United, who have yet to 

win a trophy in his lifetime. 

He officially takes up his new position on April 16.
