Melbourne, Australia – Independent media agency Match & Wood has appointed former strategy director at media company Initiative, Sam Enshaw, to be its first-ever national strategy director.

The appointment will see Enshaw, who will be based in Melbourne, leading the strategy offering across Melbourne and Perth offices, working on key clients in the education, energy, and health and insurance, as well as finance and technology sectors.

Besides previously working at Initiative, Enshaw was the former regional implementation director at IPG Mediabrands in Singapore, assisting clients including Johnson & Johnson, Netflix, and Spotify. He has also worked at media and advertising agencies Carat, McCann, and UM.

“They have developed strong teams across both Melbourne and Perth and continue to secure work with leading organizations across the country. I’m looking forward to contributing to the agency’s continued success,” said Enshaw.

Meanwhile, Match & Wood’s Managing Director Lyndelle O’Keefe commented that Enshaw is an award-winning strategist who has worked with major brands both in Australia and across the region.
