We are delighted to announce some developments at Acumen Republic. This week, Chairman Michael Dunlop announced the appointment of Adelle Keely, to the role of Chief Executive and Managing Director.
“Adelle has been with the business for 12 years and has demonstrated exceptional insight, commercial nous, client service and team leadership during this time. She formerly held senior leadership communications roles in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States,” said Michael.
At the same time, the Board also appointed Bronwyn Millar, General Manager, Wellington as an Acumen Republic company director. She joins Michael, Adelle, Mandy Hancock (CFO and Company Secretary) and Keith Goodall (independent director) on the Board.
The Wellington consulting team also has been strengthened by Bronwyn’s announcement last week of the appointment of Matthew Savage as Senior Account Director. Matthew has spent 15 years as the General Manager of a Wellington-based digital agency and his whole career has been in marketing. This appointment further augments Acumen Republic’s diverse and talented team.
Michael will continue consulting and working with clients, but will pull back from day-to-day executive management of the company. The leadership team is Adelle, Mandy and Bronwyn.
“We look forward to continuing to support our clients and evolving our business and range of services,” said Michael.
