The Church finds its Trans-Tasman leader

The Church may have opened its first office in Australia earlier last month, but it’s taken a while for it to hunt down a general manager for the new Australian office. But the hunt is over with the communication agency announcing Jeremy Taylor-Riley has been appointed to the role, bringing with him diverse marketing and communications experience both in B2B and consumer channels. 

With his roots firmly in Britain, Taylor-Riley moved to Australia in 1986, after working for the world’s largest DM agency, Wunderman, in North America, Asia and the Middle East. 

Chief executive of The Church, Simon Kozak, says the addition of Taylor-Riley brings a “young head on old shoulders” to The Church service. 

“It has taken us a long time to find the right person for this key role and Jeremy's breadth of experience and international reputation fits our bill. His experience matches our ambition to deliver The Church brand of design, advertising and communications within the Australian market and beyond," says Kozak.
