Congratulations Kelly on achieving the status of Fellow Certified Practising Marketer (CPM)


For immediate release Tuesday 17 July 2018

Please join us in congratulating Kelly Gaunt, Founder and Director of The Marketing Bungalow on achieving the status of Fellow Certified Practising Marketer (CPM) of the Australian Marketing Institute.

As a Fellow CPM of the Australian Marketing Institute Kelly has achieved the highest membership recognition as accorded by the constitution. The Australian Marketing Institute (AMI), “This status demonstrates evidence of your commitment to the profession and your own professional development.”

Kelly was humbled and thrilled to receive the news by surprise this week.

“It’s an inspiring moment to be recognised by my own peers with this achievement. I’ve dedicated my career to marketing and enjoy it more and more every day. It’s an ever-changing landscape that challenges and feeds my motivation. As a CPM, I’m committed to completing 100 hours of professional training every three years which is a must-have for anyone who runs a marketing business and loves to make their clients happy. What I learn is shared with my team, colleagues and clients. It’s a win-win.”

Kelly founded The Marketing Bungalow, a full-service marketing agency in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire in early 2015. In three and a half years the business has grown to a team of five staff, increased turnover by 51% and will be moving into Caringbah’s Locus business complex in late 2018.
