Australian specialist reputation management firm Daymark has opened its third office in Brisbane.
Daymark has also hired corporate affairs executive Andrew McConville as associate director in charge of the Brisbane office.
McConville has more than 20 years’ experience in PR and public affairs. He was most recently head of corporate affairs for Syngenta Asia-Pacific based in Singapore.
He has particular experience in the agricultural sector, and also advises on banking, government and the consumer goods market. At Daymark, his role will primarily focus on servicing clients in Queensland and seeking out opportunities in Asia.
In addition to the office launch, Daymark has also appointed Mark Paterson as associate director in Melbourne.
Paterson is a transport PR specialist, having worked as director of corporate affairs for Transdev Australasia and Connex Melbourne. He also worked for eight years at Tourism Victoria and was an adviser to the Victorian tourism minister.
"We are delighted to welcome both Andy and Mark to the Daymark team. Between them they have more than 40 years’ experience advising large corporations on complex corporate affairs issues and they will be of tremendous value to our clients," said Richard Peters, co-founder and director at Daymark.
John Fergusion, Daymark co-founder and director, said: "Andy has considerable experience in the agriculture and farming sector while Mark brings a wealth of experience in the transport industry, so we are looking forward to working with more clients in these areas and also bringing additional opportunities to our existing client base,"
The agency launched in 2010 in Sydney and Melbourne.
