Hotwire has also hired Ricki Bui as associate program executive.
Mylan Vu, managing director at Hotwire Australia, said of the appointments: “The development of the Evolving Tech business unit was a natural evolution for Hotwire following the growth of the agency within this exciting space. We have a growing demand from well-established technology organisations to cut through the noise among a shrinking media pool and growing demand for personalised content.
“At Hotwire, we understand these brands need specialised skillsets, which is why we continue to invest in bringing on board and growing our expert team with the goal of consistently delivering best of breed capabilities in this sector.
“Caroline, Krissie and Ricki join Hotwire at an opportune time and their deep knowledge of the technology and communications industries will be invaluable as we hone in on tackling communications and business challenges in highly disrupted industries for our long-standing and new clients.”
