Lara Jelinski becomes new Managing Director of Dentsu Aegis Network’s unit Amplifi
Lara Jelinski becomes new Managing Director of Amplifi as of January 2020, succeeding Andrea Dallago. She has over 10 years of experience in the media industry. In her last position at MediaCom she was Senior Trading Manager and responsible for client trading activities, saving targets, KPIs and strengthening partnerships.
Lara Jelinski will be part of the Steering Board for Amplifi – the media innovation and investment arm of the Dentsu Aegis Network Switzerland (DAN) reporting into Walter Hassler, CFO at DAN Switzerland.
