Indonesia , 11 October, 2022 — Award-winning integrated communications agency Mutant has appointed communications veteran Tanya Tresnasarito launch and scale the agency in Indonesia.

As country manager, Tresnasari will lead, run and deliver strategic and results-driven campaigns across PR, content, social media and branding.

Tresnasari, who was previously double hatting as General Manager at Golin Jakarta and Weber Shandwick Indonesia, brings more than 20 years of experience in the communications industry, spanning advertising, activation and public relations. At Golin and Weber Shandwick, she was instrumental in driving cross-practice collaboration and helped to diversify the agency’s roster with key clients, including Sanofi, MSD, Clubhouse, Linktree, Carousell, Shell, Hyundai, Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airlines, amongst others.

It’s an exciting time to enter the market, with a differentiated offering that combines PR, content, social media and branding to help businesses succeed. I can’t think of anyone better than Tanya to lead us through this, and pave the way for Mutant’s next chapter,” said Joseph Barratt, founder and CEO of Mutant.

“Just as the name suggests, Mutant is constantly evolving. I’m excited to bring the agency’s blended PR, content, social and branding approach and adapt it for clients locally. With the addition of new hires, Mutant Indonesia has already hit the ground running, and I look forward to welcoming and driving real business outcomes for clients,” said Tresnasari.

Gabriela Gunawan also joins Mutant Indonesia as a PR Manager. Previously from Golin Jakarta and Weber Shandwick, Gunawan has worked with a variety of clients, including Morgan Stanley, Johnson & Johnson, Sanofi,  SK-II and Mastercard.
