The announcement:

MELBOURNE (26 February, 2012) – Strategic brand consulting and design firm, Landor Associates, has announced the promotion of Kristin Nevin from Client Services Director to Executive Director of the Melbourne office.

Following a successful year in the local market, Nevin will be directing the company through continued growth, helping to develop both its business offering and presence in the Australian market.

With 13 years of experience in advertising, branding and design, Nevin started her career with Grey Worldwide and JWT, where she managed campaigns for Mitre 10, Shell, and Blockbuster. She then moved to DiDonato, where she worked with Lion Nathan, Schweppes and Cadbury on brand strategy, naming, packaging design and new product development. Nevin also played an instrumental role at Asprey Creative for clients including National Foods, Kraft Foods, Jetstar and Pacific Brands.

Nevin is confident in the potential of Landor’s Melbourne team:

“We are really excited by the success we have had in our first year of business and the platform we have created for our clients here in Melbourne. We have a fantastic combination of client experience and creative expertise. After our strong launch last year, the key focus for 2013 will be to continue this growth while delivering the same outstanding service our clients have come to expect from Landor globally. We aim to uphold Landor’s leading position in the industry and are excited about raising our profile in such a unique and inspiring city – the place I have always called home.”

Other members of the Melbourne team include Phillipa (Pip) Miles and Angel Tanchoco. Pip brings experience from a number of leading agencies, including Pearl Fisher and JKR in London, and Angel joined the team last year, after working with Cowan Design in South East Asia. Collectively, they have 13 years of experience working with clients like Cadbury, Mars, Heinz, Nestle, Birds Eye and John West, and bring to the agency valuable market insights from a global perspective.

Dominic Walsh, Managing Director of Landor Australia, is also confident about the growth prospects for the Melbourne office this year:

“We saw a great opportunity in the Melbourne market and have been fortunate in seeing the business grow steadily over the past year. With Kristin at the helm, we look forward to making our presence in Australia even stronger.”
