Mr. Apple, one of New Zealand’s largest apple producers, has announced the appointment of Jo Turner as internal marketing manager. Global sales and marketing manager Ben McLeod said the time was right for the Hawke’s Bay-based company to expand their team.
“The continued growth of the Mr Apple brand in Asia, India and the Middle East and our strategy of increasing consumer awareness through modern retail led us to take on the role of marketing manager,” said McLeod.
“We are pleased to appoint Jo Turner, who has extensive FMCG, retail, media, PR and branding experience, having previously worked with Fonterra brands NZ and more recently Mondelez / Cadbury.
“The business has changed a lot in the last 10 years, and the accelerating rate of change in e-commerce, social media, branding, sustainability, and PR has meant we had to add more to keep up with both Resource and Jo’s experience and skills will help move Mr. Apple forward. “
Turner started operations this week (February 15) and will report to Ben McLeod (Global Sales and Marketing Manager) along with Hannah Ren (Brand Manager – Asia) and Lisa Cork (Special Projects).
