Ex-CBA brand general manager Stuart Tucker joins hipages as CCO

Tradie hire site hipages has announced the appointment of Stuart Tucker as the company’s chief customer officer in a newly-created role encompassing sales, service and marketing.

Tucker was previously Commonwealth Bank’s GM of brand, sponsorship and marketing services, during which he was responsible for brand strategy and communications, events, social media and sponsorships.

The news comes a month after CBA promoted its consumer marketing chief, Monique Macleod, to acting CMO until the end of the calendar year.

Prior to his time at CBA, Stuart held the role of general manager, marketing and product at Aussie Home Loans. Before that, he held marketing positions at Optus for 12 years.

Stuart Tucker said: “I’m delighted to be joining the hipages team. It’s an exciting business with a strong growth mandate in an intriguing category. The opportunity to focus on the end-to-end customer experience is highly motivating, as is the chance to further build brand awareness.”

David Vitek, CEO of hipages, said: “Stuart is a highly talented marketing and brand specialist, with an impressive range of career experience across leading Australian companies. We are thrilled to have him join our team, and lead our brand strategies across sales, service and marketing.

“At hipages, we are dedicated to recruiting strong talent. Those that not only exude great skills and specialisation in their field, but are also truly excited and passionate about our service, and motivated to help continue the strong growth path that we’re on.

“hipages is experiencing solid growth year-on-year, and we are continuing to grow the team to maintain our premium level of service. In the past year, our staff numbers have increased by 36 per cent, today totalling 300 employees across our offices in Sydney and Manilla,” added Vitek.
