Today, CHEP announced the elevations of Jonny Berger to Sydney managing director, and Mariana Rice to managing partner, bolstering the Sydney office’s management team as part of the recently revitalised CHEP Network.
Jonny and Mariana have been long-time high performers within the Group, having had pivotal roles in driving client satisfaction and agency growth, winning new business, and leading some of the Group’s most prestigious and creative clients.
Justin Hind, CEO at CHE Proximity said: “Jonny is a world-class agency leader, who over the last 12 months has had a big impact on agency performance and culture. I couldn’t think of anyone better to stand proudly alongside of, as we continue to evolve CHEP into our next era of growth and innovation.”
Justin continued: “Mariana is an inspirational leader of people, her wealth of experience leading significant and diverse client portfolios will bring an incredible strength and intellect to the CHEP executive team during this exciting time of growth.”
Jonny Berger said: “I am humbled, excited and only a little terrified by this amazing opportunity. Joining CHEP last year as the business took another evolution has been a hugely rewarding experience and I’m grateful for the support of Justin, Mariana, the rest of the Exec team and each and every Chepper as we take this next step forwards together.”
Mariana Rice said: “I’m really looking forward to the next era of CHEP. I’ve seen the agency grow and evolve over the last six years, and I believe CHEP is well and truly set up to continue doing great creative work for our clients, while being the most rewarding place to work for our people.”
