Mark Gretton, chief technology officer of CHEP Tech said, “Our technology services have experienced a significant surge in growth over the last 18 months, both through the impact of COVID- driven digital acceleration and major new client wins. Having grown one of the biggest on-shore development teams in the industry in our Melbourne office, it’s exciting to be accelerating growth of our Sydney team too with great new leadership to provide higher order technology consulting support on-the-ground.”
L-R: Jacinta Karras, Tim Chapman, Charlotte Burton, Kirill Frolow.
Tim Chapman, previously a tech director at both Isobar and Ogilvy Sydney brings in over 17 years’ experience, including leading the rebuild of City of Sydney’s digital experience, AAMI Smart Plates App, Travelcorp’s ecommerce platform, Starlight Children’s Foundation and major platform initiatives for Microsoft.
Kirill Frolov, joins from Isobar Sydney where he led Isobar’s Adobe Practice. His recent achievements include supporting the rebuild of Macquarie Bank’s public-facing web channels, leading the launch of Mitsubishi’s Australia web experience and consulting on Toyota Finance’s new digital platform.

Having successfully launched CHEP’s mixed reality practice and digital practice for Samsung, Charlotte Bruton is looking forward to diversifying her remit to broader forms of emerging technology solutions in her new role as Head of Innovation Strategy.
