Mango welcomes three new hires

Following a strong start to the year, Mango Aotearoa has welcomed fresh and returning talent with three new hires across its PR, digital and experiential teams. 

This includes Account Directors Elle Dorset and Cleo Kranenburg, as well as Digital and Social Director Jade Kaukau. 

Mango Aotearoa’s Managing Director, Claudia Macdonald says: “Mango is continuing to experience rapid growth with half a dozen new business wins since the beginning of the year.  

“There’s a strong demand for the full breadth of our services, so we’re excited to welcome our new members who will strengthen our digital, corporate and experiential offerings.”

Kranenburg, who specialises in brand activation and event marketing, returns to Mango’s experiential team as Account Director. She left the agency in 2017 to gain overseas experience, spending a year in Amsterdam before returning to New Zealand and taking a role as Senior Account Manager at DRUM. Now back at Mango, Kranenburg will work across a range of clients to concept and deliver multifaceted campaigns and events. 

Dorset joins Mango from the Spark NZ in-house communications team, and has worked on a range of FMCG and lifestyle clients at Pead. Her new role is a unique mix of inhouse and agency PR and sees her contributing to the strategy and delivery of communications for DDB Group agencies, in addition to accounts including Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Whai Rawa and Kiwi Property. 

An experienced digital content specialist, Kaukau joins Mango from Auckland Unlimited as maternity cover. Kaukau will work with Mango’s PR teams to deliver high-performing campaigns for clients including Vodafone, Samsung, Lion and New Balance.  

Macdonald says: “The exceptional work we deliver for clients is testament to the breadth of experience across our teams, and we’re fortunate to continue to grow this capability with new talent.”
