There’s nothing like a few crisp autumn days to sharpen the mind. And as the streets get crunchy, and warm light paints the walls gold, we celebrate six new starters who’ve recently joined Principals. Ready to put their unique skills to work.
We’ve added three new faces to our creative management team. In Melbourne, Supriya Shetty joins as an Account Manager. Supriya started in January, and is experienced in service delivery and client relations. She loves travelling about as much as she hates spiders.
In Sydney, Anna Kan joins as Senior Account Manager, and we welcome back Gemma Forsyth. Anna started in December and has more than 8 years’ experience, with a background in international business and events management. Her passion for creativity inspired her switch to branding.
Gemma was last at Principals as a Business Development Executive in 2020, and started back with us in March in her current role as Account Manager. In her other lives she’s a part-time mermaid (you’ll have to ask) and full-time crime novel enthusiast.
We’ve also welcomed two new writers to our growing stable at XXVI. Jess Leech joined our Melbourne office in January, bolstering our wordcount as a Senior Writer. With more than 15 years’ experience and degrees in marketing and literature, she describes herself as indecisive except when it comes to choosing the right words.
In Sydney, Josie Pereira started as a Writer in April. With a background in fine arts and an established career as a painter, Josie combines her passion for cultural analysis with a keen eye for detail to bring a unique perspective to brand writing.
And our digital creative offering has grown as well, with the addition of Harry Davies as a Junior UX/UI designer, starting February. Based in Perth, Harry interned with us before officially joining the team. He’s passionate about human-centred, accessible design, and hopes to one day surf the Mentawai Islands.
We’re thrilled to welcome all this new talent to our offices, and can’t wait to see how their ideas will shape our work in the months to come.
Meet the whole team.
