ChappellRoberts has promoted Christine Turner to president of the Tampa-based advertising and branding agency, the latest move in a long-term succession plan.
Turner has for years worked as a principal at the firm, leading strategy, branding and new business development while managing several key departments, according to a statement. As president, she will direct “all facets of agency operations and growth,” the firm notes.
“Today is a momentous day in our agency history. Christine’s unparalleled experience, commitment and passion will lead the agency into our next phase of growth,” says Colleen Chappell, who will remain as CEO, in the statement. “For more than two decades, she has been instrumental in growing ChappellRoberts into a sought-after branding agency for global, national and regional clients. This is an incredibly exciting time for our agency and our clients.”
In addition to her work at ChappellRoberts, Turner also has served on the boards of the Tampa Bay Chamber, the Tampa Downtown Partnership, the USF Alumni Association and the Greater Tampa Swim Association. She also is past chair of Leadership Tampa Alumni, a past board member of the Tampa Bay Business for Culture and Arts and past president of Public Relations Society of Tampa Bay.
“Working with our founder, Deanne Roberts, and then Colleen Chappell has given me great insight into strong leaders and growing business through a focus on collaboration and culture,” Turner says in the statement. “I take all that wisdom with me as I continue to work with the team and Colleen on delivering measurable results for our great clients.”
ChappellRoberts has been in business for more than 40 years. The firm is currently headquartered in Tampa’s historic Ybor City.
