In addition, Alexandra Kelly will join Edelman Sydney as General Manager on June 1. Kelly joins from Weber Shandwick, where she was Head of Client Services for Australia.

An Edelman spokesperson tells PRNewser, “What put this all in motion was our current Managing Director for Australia, Amanda Little, asking if she could spend more time with her family and continue to do great work with us. So, effective 1 June, Amanda will start and lead our national Sustainability Practice. This practice is one of our key APAC regional initiatives.”
