Dhondy joins from CHE Proximity where she worked across brands including Telstra, Nurofen and Yamaha.

Her hire follows a string of new business wins for Mango Melbourne, including retailer Platypus Shoes, which has 70 locations across Australia and New Zealand.
Mango Melbourne has also expanded its remit on the Coles portfolio and secured project work with FMCG giant Simplot.
Mango Melbourne GM Jessica Allison said: “In her short time with Mango, Laura has already impressed us by showing how her strong strategic mindset and considered approach to tackling communications challenges can create impact for our clients.”
Dhondy said: “I’m really thrilled to be joining Mango Communications and the wider DDB team.
