New MD for marcusbrewster
Integrated PR and strategic communications agency, marcusbrewster, has appointed Andre Fourie as managing director. The 33-year-old joined the agency in June 2015 as strategic communications director, and past PR experience includes time at DUO Marketing + Communications, The Phoenix Partnership and Positive Dialogue Communications / Arctic Circle.
Fourie outlines three key priorities for the agency, which celebrates its 25th year in 2016: “The first order of business is appointing top talent into key positions within the agency. We are also in the midst of evolving the current service model to meet changing market needs, especially as we enter a period of global economic uncertainty. Finally, we are broadening our scope of services to ensure client success in an increasingly fragmented market, with a strong focus on strategic consulting.”
