Welcome home Strahan
We are very pleased to announce that Strahan Wallis is returning to us as the new CEO of Clemenger Group New Zealand, commencing mid-March.
Strahan’s return follows a successful stint as Managing Director of Porter Novelli Los Angeles and Executive Vice President, Global Reputation Management. He held management positions at Porter Novelli New Zealand for seven years.
In three and a half years, Strahan grew the Porter Novelli business in Los Angeles more than three-fold, winning a host of awards and advising large clients in the global food, agriculture, health and entertainment sectors. He also co-led the development of the agency’s global product and innovation system which saw considerable growth.
We’re delighted to have someone with the executive experience and global reputation of Strahan returning home. He is a highly respected marketing and communications professional who remains well-connected within the NZ business community and his record of cohesively leading teams and growing businesses in times of considerable change have been exceptional.
Jim Gall will remain Chairman of Clemenger Group New Zealand and provide a seamless transition for Strahan as he takes the reins on 15 March.
