“With the changing landscape externally it is great to be around brilliant minds to help refresh your skills and give you that level set so when the opportunity to join Aldi came up, it was sooner than I thought but something I couldn’t turn down to be part of the growth story.

“Under Kieran Moore’s leadership at Ogilvy PR they are a great agency, she was fantastic to work for and it was such a refreshing experience to be part of their ranks,” Christie told Mumbrella.

His role at Aldi will include employee communications, external communications and customer service.

Kieran Moore, CEO at Ogilvy PR Australia, told Mumbrella: “The ALDI gig is a great one and I know that Adrian will do a brilliant job. He leaves Ogilvy with a lot of friends and the very best wishes.”

Ogilvy PR have not yet made a replacement and are currently look for a new director.
