Sydney, Australia – Social and influencer agency One Green Bean (OGB) has announced its newest leadership promotions within the agency, with Amber Abbott being promoted to general manager, while Mary Proulx becoming head of social and influence.

In their new roles, Abbott takes responsibility for leading the agency, including managing new business and client services across all OGB offerings, and driving agency culture and employee development. Meanwhile, Proulx will lead both the social team and the influencer marketing team at OGB, known as Co-maker. Her remit will be to build on the social and influencer offering with a focus on social strategy, cultural insights, content production and paid social.

Prior to her new role, Abbott was OGB’s head of client services. She began her career as a publicist at Torstar Communications a decade ago, before spending three years in account management roles at London’s The Clear Agency.

Proulx, on the other hand, started out her career as social media director at Red Havas in 2017, and was promoted to group account director in March this year. She joined the Havas Village from her role as social media director at Isentia Strategy & Content, formerly known as King Content, after beginning her agency career in Canada in account roles at PR and communications outfit North Strategic.

Simone Gupta, CEO Havas PR Australia, said, “One Green Bean is a business with creative ideas and a unique agency culture built into its DNA, so it is fantastic to promote from within two talented people who live these values.”
