Twitter communications manager Maria Catanzariti switches to Airbnb

Twitter will outsource more of its PR to its local agency after the departure of Maria Catanzariti to become PR manager for Airbnb in Australia and New Zealand.

Catanzariti had been communications manager at Twitter for just over two years.

Catanzariti: Will not be replaced at Twitter

Prior to this she worked as a strategic communications manager at UN Women Australia for two years, and as a media adviser to the Department of Premier and Cabinet (NSW) for three years.

Twitter’s head of PR and communications Nathan Burman will now run the brand’s communications on his own in-house, with agency assistance.

A spokesperson from Twitter said the social platform will instead instead give more work to its PR agency Sling & Stone, which was appointed to the account late last year.

Catanzariti told Mumbrella of the move to Airbnb: “I’m excited to have joined such an energetic team who have a passion for people, places and great stories.”

Catanzariti started her role at Airbnb last month, replacing Alexandra Constantinides who has moved into a new role as Airbnb’s Trips market manager.
