NATIVE VML welcomes new board members

The launch of NATIVE VML which is now complete, has culminated in a restructured board aimed at aligning NATIVE VML with its strategic objectives for the years ahead.
Jason Xenopoulos, Chief Executive Officer of NATIVE VML, says he is delighted with the new board appointments. "Kingsley Potter, the Managing Director of sister agency Y&R Advertising, has an important role to play in fostering ongoing collaboration between NATIVE VML and Y&R.

"Oupa Monamodi, the Chairman of the Protea Investment Trust - a significant shareholder in NATIVE VML and an important part of our empowerment strategy, adds tremendous value to our team with his wealth of knowledge and experience particularly in the area of corporate governance.

"As the only independent director, Xoliswa Ndungane brings a fresh perspective to our board. She has years of experience as a senior marketing professional and has already begun contributing to our new business offering. I look forward to working with them in 2014," says Xenopoulos.

In June, David Sable, Global CEO of Y&R, Jon Cook, President and CEO of VML, and Jason Xenopoulos, CEO of NATIVE, announced the launch of NATIVE VML - a new entity bringing together the two digital brands.

At the time of the launch announcement, Jon Cook, President & CEO of VML, added his endorsement to the new brand saying, "Our global expansion is following a very simple strategy - taking great care in finding the right partner - strong capabilities, of course, but also the right fit in terms of people and culture. We know NATIVE is an extraordinary match on all counts and a great platform for us as we look to build our brand further in the African market."

Xenopoulos believes this partnership will allow the agency to further its growth in South Africa and Africa by bringing world-class skills, and the power of VML and the whole Y&R Advertising network to the continent.

NATIVE was rebranded as NATIVE VML in November.
