Acumen Republic strengthens its senior leadership

Before she joined us, she held senior leadership communications roles in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States,” said Michael.

The Acumen Republic Board has also appointed Bronwyn Millar, General Manager, Wellington as an Acumen Republic company director. She joins Chairman Michael Dunlop, Adelle Keely, Managing Director, Mandy Hancock, CFO and Company Secretary and Keith Goodall, Independent Director on the Acumen Board.
