Following several recent competitive pitches, PRISM AUNZ was awarded business from Bankwest, Uber, eBay, Mitsubishi and the Victorian Government primarily in the property evaluation and strategy space as well as partnership negotiation and project management. Thanks to an unlimited access to data, insights, resources, and global best-case work as part of the WPP network, PRISM AUNZ has expanded and evolved their capabilities to new areas.

Shannan Quinn, managing director, PRISM AUNZ said, “As we expand upon our products and services, these new hires are intrinsic in enabling us to service our clients at a higher level.

“I am beyond exiting to welcome Dan, Nick, Rennie and Virginia to the PRISM AUNZ team. All of them bring a unique and different skill set to the business and have amazing experience and contacts in the industry which will only further bolster our capabilities.

“With multiple new business wins in the bag already this year, combined with our growth trajectory, it’s a very exciting time to be joining– I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store with our new recruits leading the charge.”

All appointments are effective immediately.
