Andrew Mackinnon

Managing Director, The Taboo Group

Melbourne

The tale of Taboo began when a nineteen year-old, ambitious Melbourne-ite heard the sound of London calling. Answering the call, Andrew relocated to colder climates and begun working as a street hustling salesman. He returned to Australia a year later, determined to provide something different.

Now 16 years on, Taboo has evolve into a full scale creative agency, delivering campaigns for the country’s biggest brands: Nike, NAB, Haagen Dazs, Telstra, Cadbury, Chupa Chups, Schweppes, TAC, Sensis, Witchery, Mimco and CUB. In 2011, Andrew opened the iconic Ponyfish Island, a barge-come-bar situated on Melbourne’s Yarra River.

A born go-getter has culminated in Mackinnon’s role as the President of the Entrepreneur’s Organisation Australia – Victoria Chapter. Mackinnon’s engaging vivacity has made him a compelling asset both inside and outside the boardroom, with The Financial Review Magazine listing him as a must-have on any event’s “Guest wish-list”.
