Nadine Young, Starcom

Nadine joined Starcom as Managing Director in August 2019 and was promoted to CEO one year later. Under her leadership, Starcom has secured a series of big-brand new business wins, client satisfaction scores have skyrocketed to their highest ever level, and she has pioneered initiatives that have driven a Talent NPS of 8+. She’s done all this as a single mother of an 8-year-old boy, juggling the demands of motherhood with her career while still finding time to mentor younger industry talent. Nadine champions a ‘my-team-first’ approach that galvanises people around her vision; a philosophy that drives results while creating a sense of warmth and approachability so often lacking in leadership.
