Search and social agency Reprise Media is strengthening its Australian network with the creation of two new national positions and the appointment of three new senior leaders in the Sydney and Melbourne offices.
Reprise Media Australia CEO Craig Ellis named Dennis Wong as national operations manager, a new position. His primary role will be to ensure the highest standards of processes and efficiencies across the agency’s four Australian offices. Wong will relocate from Sydney to Reprise Media’s Melbourne office, which has now grown to 18 people. “Dennis is the right person for this new role and he will thrive under this new challenge,” said Ellis. Prior to his new appointment Wong was an account director at the Sydney agency.
Harjit Rana joins Reprise Media as social communities and analytics director, a new position. Rana previously had a nine-year career with the BBC in the UK in digital marketing, where she has been at the forefront of the corporation’s digital expansion both in the UK and overseas. She played a leading role in the launch strategy for the global BBC iPlayer app in 16 markets across Europe, Australia and Canada.
Wayne O’Brien has joined Reprise Media to lead the Hyundai and Kia accounts. He formally worked at M&C Saatchi on CommBank and spent four years at the Ogilvy group working on major accounts including Telstra and St. George Bank, specialising in direct marketing, engagement development, staff communications as well as off-line and online media.
“Dennis, Harjit and Wayne are high calibre individuals, who have key roles within the agency and will play a significant part in the future of our business,” said Ellis.
