David Kruse, a veteran in the media and marketing industry, has a successful career spanning over two decades. As the CEO of MK Media Australia, David has been instrumental in guiding his team to create an independent media agency that delivers tangible, transparent results for clients. His rich experience, keen business acumen, and adept leadership have consistently empowered clients with strategies and tools to grow their businesses.

Recognised for his ability to transform businesses, David’s innovative leadership style and media expertise have been praised and acknowledged by his peers. Some of his remarkable achievements include making it to Smart Company’s Hot 30 Under 30 and being a finalist for Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year.

Before his tenure at MK Media, David spent nearly five years as the CEO of Kruse Media. Here, he transformed the media for a past employer into a full-fledged agency servicing some of Australia’s key national brands, including Spotlight, Anaconda, Caterpillar, SpecSavers, and Hairhouse Warehouse. This achievement was a testament to David’s ability to harness local independent media talent, driving client shift away from larger multinational firms.

Earlier in his career, David served as the youngest Media Manager at Spotlight Retail Group. His tenure at Spotlight played a crucial role in sharpening his media skills, allowing him to negotiate deals directly with media outlets.
