Horn, who was most recently at Weber Shandwick, has more than a decade of experience in Sydney and the UK across sustainability, FMCG, technology, financial services, retail, energy and healthcare.
He’s supported global and local brands including Mastercard, Nespresso, Bupa, ExxonMobil, IBM, Nivea for Men, First Drinks and Toyota.

Michael Pooley, CEO PPR ANZ, in welcoming Horn to the team and Prince to her new role, said:
“Building strong positive corporate reputations has never been more important.
“We are experiencing strong demand from current and new corporate clients and Horn will spearhead that growth.
“Horn’s experience locally and internationally will be a tremendous asset to PPR.”
Commenting on his appointment, Horn added: “It’s fantastic to be joining the PPR team at such an exciting time of growth for the agency.
