National Heart Foundation CMO Chris Taylor said: “Between them, Bernie and Troy have more than 25 years’ experience as accomplished marketing strategists.

“They are outstanding choices to help lead the Heart Foundation’s marketing as we look to build a consolidated marketing strategy for the organisation and lead the fight toward an Australia free of heart disease.”

Taylor is carving out a consolidated marketing strategy for the Heart Foundation and has developed a single marketing function for the national body for the first time.

“Since I began at the Heart Foundation, I’ve been developing a high-performing, commercially-focused marketing team to meet the objectives of our three-year ‘One Heart’ strategic plan,” he said.

“Bernie and Troy, together with an expanded team of marketing professionals, will assist in driving the organisation to become more customer-focused while evolving our digital assets to deliver a data driven, connected and personalised customer experience.”

Commenting on his appointment, Hallam said: “Joining the Heart Foundation at this critical juncture is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference, not only to the Heart Foundation brand itself, but to the lives of so many Australians.

“I’m looking forward to delivering crucial insights and intelligence that strengthens our relevance and relationships with everyday Australians.”

Muir said: “I’m genuinely excited about the opportunity to combine my experience in marketing operations and technology with a brand of such significance and purpose as the Heart Foundation.

“I’m eager to take this opportunity to build a new foundational capability that enables us to communicate with and involve our donors, supporters and community in a personalised way.”
