The announcement:

Kristy Mansfield has been appointed as the General Manager WA for our industry’s social purpose organisation UnLtd.

UnLtd’s current General Manager WA Carol Morris will be moving into a Board role and will be joined by two new Directors of the Board – Simone Woodward, Manager of Marketing & Communications at RAC and Jim Groves, Managing Director Perth at Carat.

Chris Freel, UnLtd CEO said: “Since we launched UnLtd in Perth last year, Carol has done a phenomenal job in bringing the WA industry together for good and establishing UnLtd as the industry’s own social purpose organisation in the WA market. We are grateful to have Carol’s continued support as one of our Board Directors as we move on to the next exciting stage.”

media’s most well regarded and much loved sales professionals. She will build on the great foundation that Carol Morris has started with UnLtd and raise the profile even further to help make a huge difference in the lives of young people at risk.”

Mansfield will commence her role as General Manager WA in early March. Her key focus will be growing industry partnerships, expanding the UnLtd event portfolio and growing the impact that the industry has on helping young people at risk.

Carol Morris said: “In the last year, despite all the challenges COVID has thrown at us, the WA industry has rallied together to use our skills for good and make a real difference for young people at risk. We’ve got some big plans for 2021, including the introduction of several new industry events and we are so excited to have Kristy leading the charge and welcome industry heavy weights Simone and Jim to the Board.”
