Appointed president

Sarah Munnik has been appointed the new Asia-Pacific regional president for IPREX alongside her existing role as managing director for Pead PR.

“I’m thrilled to be taking on this role and look forward to advancing our members’ interests across Asia-Pacific,” Munnik said.

“I look forward to keeping our many Asia Pacific partners connected, sharing new business and best practice, and ensuring we continue to grow as a platform of professionals who are committed to effective communication on behalf of our hundreds of clients.”

“At Pead PR we know the value of being an active part of IPREX, having already represented a number of our global partners’ clients in New Zealand, helping them navigate our unique corporate, political and media landscape.”

New Direction

Fish&Clips have announced the appointment of a new director, James Anderson who brings with him years of experience within the TV industry.

Anderson has been the key creative behind titles such as Making Tracks, The Food Truck and A Night at the Classic. More recently Anderson has focused on commercial clients, working with the key sponsors of the All Blacks during this latest Rugby World Cup.

James has also snapped up a Cannes Bronze Lion, Silver & Gold Axis Awards, a TV Guide ‘Best on The Box’ and a Metro Magazine Award.
Fish is stoked to welcome James to the whanau, and we look forward to adding his quirky sense of humour, a wealth of experience and talent to our waters.

Sally Dunn joins the company taking on an account director role, Gyles Foster takes up the newly created position of growth partnership manager and Charlotte Canies has also recently joined as a campaign producer.

The Social Club’s founder and CEO Georgia McGillivray says the expanding team is indicative of the growth they have embarked on as a business.

“It’s great to have such a strong team including Sally, Gyles and Charlotte on board and taking us into the New Year, helping with the next phase of growth,” she says.

“We have some exciting new offerings to come in 2020 and we’re primed to capitalise on the insights from our recently released study into the digital landscape in the New Zealand market.”
