“Sev’s energy, passion and tenacity combined with her commercial skills and relationships are perfect for this role.

“Since our launch in 2006, UnLtd has generated over $45m in social impact to help children and young people at risk and our goal is to make it $100m by 2021.

“Sev will be instrumental in helping us reach that milestone.”

Celik said, “Our industry has incredible power and I’m passionate about joining UnLtd and using my experience to harness the great skills and influence of our industry to help crack serious social issues affecting young people in Australia.”

As the social impact that our industry generates grows, the UnLtd team has also grown to facilitate more corporate partnerships, events and new programs designed to generate more social impact to help young people at risk.

Jenni Hayward, previously senior marketing & events manager at Adrenalin has joined as head of events to drive the growing portfolio of UnLtd events such as the Big Clash cricket tournament, Big Splash regatta, Adland Bail Out and the newly launched Big Chat breakfast series.
