Leo Burnett Syndney Hires Belinda Drew And Amanda Quested

Leo Burnett Sydney has bolstered its diverse 50-strong Account Management team with two senior appointments.

New to Leo Burnett is Belinda Drew, coming on board as Group Business Director. With over ten years’ experience both locally and internationally, Belinda’s career started at GPY&R where she worked across a diverse range of portfolios from finance and retail, to telecommunications and tourism. Belinda then moved to Ogilvy, working on brands including GlaxoSmithKline, Nestlé Purina and the NSW Government. During this time she worked on numerous award-winning campaigns and was identified for multiple rising talent programs, including representing Australia at ‘AdChamps' in Sri Lanka. 

Most recently, Belinda was VP Group Account Director at TBWA\Chiat\Day New York where she led category-breaking work for L’Oreal and Michelin rolled out across the US, Canada and Mexico. 

After three years, highly awarded Amanda Quested has recently returned to Leo Burnett as Group Business Director. Originally from the UK and with close to 20 years’ industry experience, Amanda spent her formative years at BBH London working across a broad range of categories including automotive, financial services, FMCG and alcoholic beverages.  During that time Amanda was responsible for launching the world’s first branded content channel for Audi UK, and led Unilever’s Pan-European Bertolli account, which won numerous effectiveness awards. 

Joining Leo Burnett the first time in 2007, Amanda ran an award winning portfolio - Canon, McDonald’s and WWF’s Earth Hour. Amanda’s career has also seen her working as Client Services Director at Host and, most recently as a Senior Consultant for recruitment firm Hourigan International.   

Pete Bosilkovski, Client Services Director Leo Burnett Sydney, said: “I’m excited to welcome Belinda, and to welcome back Amanda to the team. Both are exceptional talents with world-class experience. We’re in a period of strong growth which is allowing us to attract more of the industry's best senior talent and both Belinda and Amanda’s exceptional skillsets give us greater depth further enhancing our senior offering.”
