Nando's marketing director exits

By Rosie Baker | 10 December 2013

Nando's marketing director Kim Russell is to leave the restaurant chain and the business relocates the top marketing job from Sydney to Melbourne.

Russell has chosen not to relocate and will leave on 17 December.

Nando's says it is relocating the marketing director role to its central support office in Melbourne to better integrate marketing initiatives within the broader business.

The move to the central office has been designed but the rest of the marketing team will remain based in Sydney.

Russell oversaw a restructure of the marketing division last month which saw a number of new manager roles created.

Nando's has yet to announce a replacement, and it is not known if Russell has a job lined up.

Craig Mason, Nando's Australia managing director, said: “Kim has been instrumental in transforming Nando’s Australia into what it is today, having led many successful Nando’s Marketing campaigns including our ‘Eat Interesting’ campaign, and the launch and roll out of the Peri-Perks Loyalty program, including the acquisition campaigns involving global superstars Katy Perry and Redfoo”.
