Henstridge joins Mango as senior account manager from Attention + Influencer (formerly PR Edge) where she worked across a number of high-profile clients, including Cochlear and Telstra, on PR and events. Account Executive Poulson comes home to Australia after spending time in the UK working in luxury fashion PR.
Mango Melbourne general manager Jessica Allison said: “Our ethos is to hire people who are talented and nice, so we’re pleased to welcome three new consultants to the Melbourne team who fit the bill perfectly.”
“Carol has an excellent track record of creating engaging experiences for high-profile brands, Janette brings a wealth of media relations experience to the table, and Maddie is a breath of fresh air with a can-do attitude,” Allison said.
Mango’s clients include: McDonald’s, Unilever, Coles, Volkswagen, TAC and Wella.
