Brown the girl about town

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News - By DENISE S. CAHILL

CLARE­MONT is the fash­ion des­ti­na­tion in WA, ac­cord­ing to the Town of Clare­mont’s new mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer Jac­qui Brown.

Ms Brown said she had worked with the Town and sev­eral re­tail­ers, in­clud­ing Sophia Jalla from Perlu, in the past but was look­ing for­ward to hav­ing more on­go­ing con­tact with them in the two­day-a-week role.

“In the past, I worked on projects that were more con­sumer-based to bring shop­pers to the area,” she said.

“Be­ing able to work in-house is a one­off for me and lets me re­ally un­der­stand the cul­ture and the com­mu­nity here.”

Ms Brown, who also runs mar­ket­ing and events com­pany The Stu­dio, said she was work­ing on ac­ti­vat­ing the Clare­mont town cen­tre in the lead-up to the Mel­bourne Cup.

“There’ll be pre-Mel­bourne Cup ac­tiv­i­ties and shop­ping in the lead-up to the big day,” she said.

Ms Jalla said her team had al­ready started help­ing cus­tomers with styling for spring rac­ing.

The Town has also ap­pointed An­nette Brown as a place ac­ti­va­tion project of­fi­cer to work with Clare­mont busi­nesses to ac­ti­vate the town cen­tre and strengthen economic out­comes.

Com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Chris Cot­tle will work on com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives with the Town’s se­niors, youth and other groups.
