FORMER SsangYong Motors Australia communications and product planning manager Andrew Ellis has moved outside the automotive industry, taking up the position of media manager for Breast Cancer Network Australia based in Melbourne.
Mr Ellis left the Australian arm of the South Korean car-maker in April, having served for only 10 months after joining the company from Haval Motors Australia, where he spent three years as communications and product planning manager.
Earlier in his career, Mr Ellis spent seven years as public relations manager for Suzuki Australia and six years in PR with Ford Australia, working as both a brand and product communications manager.
He also had a stint as a public relations specialist for Siemens.
Mr Ellis moved into the PR field after spending several years at ACP Magazines, working on titles such as Motor magazine.
SsangYong Motors Australia is still to announce a replacement for Mr Ellis.
