Patrick Gantier, general manager, Wrigley Pacific, commented, “At Wrigley we recognise that our Associates are our most valuable asset and essential to our continued growth and success. We are delighted with Alison’s promotion and to welcome her to the Leadership Team.

“Alison’s experience, energy and creativity have played a significant role in our growth strategy for the Pacific Business. Her appointment is testament to her strong ability to collaborate and the results she has delivered across a number of key portfolio and category projects.”

Most recently acting as marketing manager for Gum, the promotion to marketing director also sees her become a member of the APAC Marketing Leadership Team and a member of a number of Global Brand Boards.

Prior to joining Wrigley, Levins worked at Nestle and Unilever in Ireland where she held both marketing and commercial roles.

“Products such as ECLIPSE™ Chewy Mints and campaigns such as ‘Eat Drink, Chew’ were all developed here in Australia and have proven to be a great success internationally.”
