Stockland to appoint new group exec overseeing tech and marketing

News follows resignation of chief innovation, marketing and technology officer, Robyn Elliott

ASX-listed property giant, Stockland, will announce a new group executive covering technology, customer and marketing after the departure of Robyn Elliott later this month.

In an ASX statement today, the company confirmed Elliott, who has been its chief innovation, marketing and technology officer, had resigned after an 18-month stint. The company said it expected to make an announcement about a new group executive to oversee technology, innovation, marketing and now also customer, shortly.

Stockland MD and CEO, Mark Steinert, said a number of important initiatives had been achieved across technology, innovation and marketing during Elliott’s tenure. These had “established a great platform for the future”.

“Robyn has made a significant impact on our innovation and customer-centric culture and has led an engaged, high performing and talented team, which is well positioned for the future,” he stated. “We thank Robyn and wish her all the very best.”

Elliott was the chief information officer (CIO) at Fairfax for three years prior to taking up the newly created executive position of chief innovation and technology officer at Stockland in May 2018, reporting to the CEO. Prior to this, she spent 12 years as CIO at Foxtel.

A spokesperson confirmed Elliot took additional charge of marketing as part of her remit following an executive restructure in August 2018 which saw the group’s COO, Michael Rosmarin, and CEO of retirement living, Stephen Bull, leave the organisation.

Stockland’s GM of marketing, Ben Allen, has been reporting directly into Elliott and his role remains unchanged, the spokesperson said.

At the time of her appointment, Steinert said innovation and technology are key focus areas for Stockland and that the group has spent the two years leading up to her recruitment in digitising its business and driving initiatives to lift customer experience and growth.

You’re doing it wrong: Emotion doesn’t mean emotional

If you’ve been around advertising long enough, you’ve probably seen (or written) a slide which says: “They won’t remember what you say, they’ll remember how you made them feel.” But it’s wrong. Our understanding of how emotion is used in advertising has been ill informed and poorly applied.

Why does brand execution often kill creativity?

The launch of a new brand, or indeed a rebrand, is a transformation to be greeted with fanfare. So why is it that once the brand has launched, the brand execution phase can also be the moment at which you kill its creativity?
