Banotti takes over the role from Seán McCrave who announced he was stepping down as CEO in November after six years in the role.  The IAPI is the representative body for advertising agencies in Ireland.

An advertising industry source described Banotti as a “much-needed breath of fresh air”.

Liam McDonell, president of the IPAI, said the appointment was an strong one for the organisation.
