Porter Novelli Appoints John Frey as Non Executive Chairman

14 March 2014

John Frey, one of the region's foremost communications advisors, has been appointed as non-executive Chairman of Porter Novelli New Zealand.

Porter Novelli Managing Director Strahan Wallis says John is one of the founding partners of Cosway Australia, one of the region's leading corporate communications consultancies and a sister company for Porter Novelli in the Australian market. He has more than 30 years' experience in the industry.

“We couldn’t be more delighted to have John as part of the Porter Novelli team in New Zealand. He will serve as a strategic adviser to our senior leadership team and to clients.

“Leading businesses and governments around the region have engaged Cosway for high-level strategic advice and support on critical corporate and financial communications matters. John's experience and wisdom will make a significant difference for our business and our clients as we navigate an increasingly complex and interconnected communications environment.”

Both Cosway Australia and Porter Novelli are part of the Clemenger Group.

“John’s appointment is a great example of the value of being part of a group of leading communications agencies and the global Porter Novelli International network of 90 offices. This enables us to attract and tap the best talent available in the market,” says Strahan.
