WPP’s Cannings Purple launches Brisbane office

WPP-owned PR firm Cannings Purple has launched a Brisbane office led by Peta Baldwin.

Baldwin joins Cannings Purple after her previous stint as a public information manager at Biosecurity Queensland.

Baldwin said she is excited to be joining the agency

Warrick Hazeldine, managing director at Cannings Purple, said in a statement: “Many of our clients continue to grow in the Queensland market and we’re committed to supporting their growth.

“They will be in capable hands with Peta’s appointment. Peta brings strong investor relations expertise and well-developed insights into the wider Queensland market and she is familiar with the issues that are important to the resources and energy sector – having worked in-house at AngloGold Ashanti, Mount Isa Mines and Alcoa and consulted to listed companies such as Goldfields, Diamondcorp, Petra Diamonds and TanzaniteOne and their mining contractor partners.”

Baldwin said she was delighted to join an agency specialising in crisis management and investor relations.

“I look forward to working with Cannings Purple’s established clients and also to connecting with new clients and helping service their needs in an economy which has the resources industry as a leading growth sector.”
