Richard was an instrumental part of Interbrand Australia’s growth and success over the past six years and we wish him all the best as he embarks on his next challenge.”
Curtis has not revealed where he is moving to.
Storey has worked with Interband as an executive director for the past three years while Davis has been in the role for one year and 10 months having priorly worked for the company for one-and-a-half years as a strategy director.
In his time with the agency Storey has led a number of rebranding projects including Alzheimer’s Australia, IGLOO and more recently Opera Australia.
In a statement Storey said: “I am delighted to take on the role of GM, Interbrand Sydney. I truly believe that brands have the power to change the world – so I am looking forward to rising to this challenge.”

Storey and Davis will report in to Borchok with the company chosing not to replace the position of managing director in its current form following on from a review of its operational model.
