Martin Cowie

As Chief People Officer for OMD Australia, Martin drives the positive employer brand that distinguishes OMD from its competition and has contributed to OMD being the biggest media agency in Australia.

With over 500 employees, OMD is ranked the 7th Best Place to Work in the 2020 Great Place to Work study and has been in the top 50 for 13 consecutive years.

With an average employee age of 30, OMD is a majority Millennial/Gen Z workforce and has created an agile workplace to attract and retain these generations that expect more from an employer.

Martin is particularly passionate about Diversity and Inclusion and is proud that OMD was the first agency to launch a RAP (Reconciliation Plan) in 2017 and has a Diversity and Inclusion Charter with measurable goals through to 2024.

Martin brings 30 years of experience in media sales, media planning and buying, and HR.
