We’re a close-knit team at PLAY MRand nothing warms the cockles of our heartmore than seeing each other succeed.

So, we couldn’t be prouder to announce the promotion of our general manager, Becky Mead, to managing director.

If you’ve met Becky, you’ll know she’s the living embodiment of PLAY MR’s values: a kick-arse, can-do attitude; thoughtful; and committed to our (and our client’s) continuous improvement.

Our founder, Chris Thomas, is delighted to welcome Becky to the role. “Becky has been inspirational to work with over the last few years. She’s smart, determined and places a strong emphasis on continuous improvement which is so highly valued at PLAY. Her promotion to managing director in such a short space of time is a testament to all she has achieved.”

Becky added: “I’m thrilled to take on the role of MD at PLAY. Our company has gone from strength to strength, and it is such an exciting time for us. The Sydney team has just moved into our new digs and the Melbourne team is now up and running at speed!
