Alice Manners departs 303 MullenLowe after two weeks, joins client they just lost

Alice Manners has left her role at 303 MullenLowe Perth after just two weeks, joining Cash Converters as the new chief of digital commerce, marketing and product.

The new appointment marks Manners’ third job this year.

Two days ago, the agency said it had resigned the Cash Converters creative account, following a 10-year stint with the brand.

Manners joined 303 MullenLowe in February this year, but it has now emerged she left the role after just two weeks to take on the Cash Converters role.

Prior to her stint at 303MullenLowe, Manners spent five months at Marketforce, as the agency’s chief digital officer.

Before joining Marketforce, Manners was the chief executive officer of the Interactive Advertising Bureau for three years.

At the time of her appointment, Nick Cleaver, national CEO of 303 MullenLowe said in a statement: “We could not be happier that Alice has agreed to join our team. She brings with her a breadth and depth of media and interactive experience that strengthens our integrated offer significantly.”

It is unclear whether Manners was involved in the decision to review the Cash Converters creative account or if she will be involved in the pitch decision.

Upon resigning the Cash Converters account, Al Taylor, managing director at 303 MullenLowe said in a statement: “We step away very proud of what we have achieved and wish Cash Converters every success in the future. We are, of course, committed to supporting them as they transition to their new partner.”

Cash Converters has been approached for comment. 303 MullenLowe declined to comment on the departure.

303 MullenLowe Perth’s clients include Southern Cross Care, Kailis Bros, Allergy Aware and TK Maxx.
