PPR has appointed Snezna Kerekovic to the newly created role of Business Director, in a direct response to the agency’s continued business growth and expansion.
Kerekovic brings close to 30 years’ experience as a communications and marketing professional to this new, dedicated senior level role, with responsibilities for managing the Sydney team and playing a key strategic role in the agency’s growing client base and pipeline.
