Bernice knows the CPG industry inside out—and from farm to table. While building client relationships and creating innovative, high-impact ideas for brands, Bernice’s enthusiasm and ability to make instinctual adjustments (learned, perhaps, during her many years as a trombonist?) have earned her a reputation as an unflappable PR practitioner. So, she’s levelheaded, improvisational and endowed with a certain enviable flair. But does she, in fact, have a weakness? “Pickles,” she admits. “I could sit and eat an entire jar of pickles.”

When his clients face a crisis, whether potential or very real, Bob always brings them back to one simple question: “What are your primary business objectives?” With that as his beacon, over the past 20 years he has helped large and small organizations navigate the choppy waters of executive malfeasance, product tampering, drug diversion and abuse, product recalls and withdrawals, federal regulatory actions, media and Congressional investigations and other situations in which millions of dollars—and one’s good corporate reputation—were at stake. 

AMPR is led by Sarah’s contemporary approach to communications, drawing on her vast experience and strong relationships gained over the last 20 years in the industry. Sarah sits on the committee of the Public Relatins Council of Australia (PRC) and the RMIT Fashion Design & Enterprise Program Advisory Committee (PAC).

Jannah has worked with AMPR for 10 years. She has proven success and experience working with major Retail & Consumer brands to deliver multi- faceted campaigns and activations that generate strong public relations outcomes.

Stephanie has been with the agency for 3+ years. Stephanie is experienced in results driven, integrated PR campaigns. Prior to AMPR, Stephanie gained 10+ years experience working at Left Left Right Agency in New York, and Crown Resorts, Melbourne.
