Quiip has promoted Larah Kennedy to general manager and Will Barber as client services director.
Kennedy steps up to the newly created general manager role from client services director, which she has held for three years. Meanwhile, Barber takes over from Kennedy as senior community manager.
Kennedy will focus on the overall operations and strategic direction of the company, working closely with the senior team to drive growth, innovation, and client satisfaction.
Barber will oversee fostering client relationships, as well as accelerating growth for the social media and online community management specialist.

Kennedy and Barber’s appointments also follow Quiip’s growth in 2023, marked by its growing list of clientele and the introduction of its Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).
The appointments underscore the social media and online community management specialist’s commitment to recognising and nurturing talent within the organisation.
