DAN Government Solutions will be led by industry veteran Nick Swifte, who will relocate from Melbourne to Canberra. Swifte has worked with DAN for more than 20 years, most recently as Head of Investment for dentsu X. 

Simon Ryan, CEO ANZ, Dentsu Aegis Network, said: “As a Network we have many years’ experience working with Government clients, including Australian, Victorian and West Australian Governments. We’re very pleased to strengthen our presence in Canberra and invest in providing a dedicated team to service Government clients.” 

“The Government sector has a unique set of requirements, and our understanding of the needs of Government is second to none in Australia. Having a dedicated division, led and staffed by some of the industry’s most experienced and renowned Government specialists, will allow Government clients to tap into a unique pool of capability, resource and expertise.”

Nick Swifte, Head of DAN Government Solutions, said: “Having worked with Government clients for many years, we appreciate the complex and unique nature of delivering Government work. DAN’s dedication to providing specialist expertise on Government communciations is a real point of difference in Australia. Our brands such as dentsu X, Isobar, Cox Inall Change and Columbus have worked extensively across so many facets of Government communications over the years – from media to social to PR and more – that the opportunity to bring all these skills together, in a relevant and tailored way, with complete transparency, is truly exciting.”
