Chris Pahor joins Reprise Brisbane as key account manager from Traffika, where he worked as a social media manager. He reports to recently appointed Brisbane office leader Robbie Aoukar.

In Western Australia, Reprise Media specialist Stuart MacDougall has relocated from Sydney to Perth, where the agency has picked up new client work that it is not prepared to disclose, according to a spokesman.
The new premises will be operating out of parent-group Mediabrands offices and are in addition to the agency's operations in Sydney and Melbourne, bringing the staff count to more than 50.
"By the end of 2012 we expect the business will have grown by 300 per cent since its launch in 2010," said Craig Ellis, Reprise Media Australia's chief executive officer. "Pay per click search has been the principal area of growth in the past two years, but social media and SEO [search engine optimisation] continue to accelerate rapidly, and we expect both to grow more than 110 per cent this year alone."
Reprise Media's major clients include the Australian government, Wesfarmers, Hyundai, Kia, ING, Microsoft and Brown Forman.
