“A newly established, modern matrix management organizational structure has ensured PPR breaks down traditional branch office silos and creates ideal cross-office and practice collaboration.
“The appointments of three Directors responsible for Innovation, Talent and Clients Services supported by an ‘always on’ business model to ‘follow the sun,’ sees PPR Australia lead client strategy and service when the rest of the world is sleeping,” he said.
