Hill & Knowlton loses another senior staffer, this time to Porter Novelli

Hill & Knowlton director of strategy and planning Sally Hart has joined Porter Novelli Sydney as principal of the Consumer Lifestyle Practice with the announcement that Lisa Tantillo, who holds the position, is to take 12 months maternity leave from next month.

“I am really excited to join Porter Novelli, which is a company on the move, and building on the great foundations that Lisa has put in place over the past couple of years,” Hart said.

Richard Muller, MD of Porter Novelli Sydney said: “There are few in Australia with Sally’s mix of experience, strategic thought, generous personality and leadership qualities. With her client experience spanning FMCG, tourism, beverages and a wide range of consumer products, we look forward to a long, fun and rewarding time with Sally as a senior member of the leadership team at Porter Novelli.”
