Jerome Whelan

Chief Financial Officer, dentsu ANZ

Prior to being appointed to CFO of dentsu ANZ, Jerome focused his attention on Operational Excellence across APAC where he was the Business Lead for New Business & Account Management powered by Salesforce and the Project Management Toolkit. Jerome began his tenure at dentsu in October 2015 as CFO of Isobar, and MKTG in Australia and, following that, led Commercial Finance across Australia.

Jerome has deep experience in the Media, Advertising and Communications industry both in Melbourne and in New York. Having held positions in media, creative and digital operations he brings a broad skill set to the CFO role, across strategy, commercial finance and transformation. 

Prior to DAN, he led ASX listed companies as CFO as well as US GAAP experience in NASDAQ and NYSE listed companies. Jerome has deep technical skills in financial operational management, corporate accounting, financial analysis, forecasting, change management, process re-design & new systems integration.

In the M&A space he has significant experience on both the buy and sell side, and has led both high growth and margin plays on each side of the acquisition transaction.

Away from work, during winter you will find him on the slopes of Mt Hotham, but cricket is his greatest passion. He spends most summer weekends playing for the Toorak-Prahran Cricket Club or with the family keeping his two boys out of their mother’s hair while occasionally whipping up a BBQ on a Sunday night.
