The promotion of existing team members shows Bastion are valuing experience when it comes to servicing existing clients
Leading corporate affairs agency Bastion Reputation has recognised and rewarded three experienced staff with promotions to new positions in a move that further reinforces the firm’s continued growth and is a statement of intent for the year ahead.
Former elite sports senior communicator and journalist, Jeremy Arnold, has been promoted to the new role of associate principal consultant and joins Reputation’s senior leadership group.
Jeremy moved into consulting in late-2021 after senior communications roles with the Essendon Football Club and the Australian men’s cricket team, which followed his time as a journalist with Network 10.
Joining Jeremy in the senior leadership group is experienced consultant, Andrea Robertson who has been at Bastion Reputation since October 2022.
She has been elevated to the newly-created role of director client operations and will oversee all aspects of client experience.
Further reaffirming the client-first approach is the appointment of Georgie Patterson to group client director.
Georgie joined Reputation as an intern in early 2019 and has enjoyed a rapid rise through company ranks, and in her new role will support Andrea, while also working as a senior strategist, and senior trainer within the firm’s Training and Capability practice area.
“I am really proud to see three of our staff be rewarded with promotions into new roles that create exciting new opportunities for them while ensuring our clients have the best people in place to support them,” said Bastion Reputation managing director, Clare Gleghorn.
“Jeremy has really found a home in consulting and while our clients have benefitted from his vast experience in high-profile organisations, it has been impressive to watch his commitment to developing his craft and to our clients.
“The creation of the associate principal consultant role further deepens the experience within our senior team and to ensure our growing list of Sydney-based clients receive the same experience we are on the lookout for someone to fill that role in Sydney, so it is an exciting time for our team and clients.
“Andrea has brought deep agency experience and client excellence to our team and this new role shows how serious our focus is on ensuring our clients have the best experience possible.
“Georgie’s promotion is a fantastic recognition of her performance in our team for many years. It has been rewarding to watch her rapid rise in the team and she richly deserves this new role which will let her wide range of skills shine.”
