A Message from Mark Kindness, General Manager of APPA

Dear Members,

Thank you for the warm welcome that I have received since joining APPA, it has certainly been a great start!

In the short time that I have been in my role I have already experienced the passion and the dedication that our team (Cath, Ida, Kirsten and Tony) and our Board members have for the Association and the promotional products industry in Australia and New Zealand. 

It is my belief that passion persuades, and I am looking forward to working with you all to spread the story of our industry to bring new members to APPA, new customers to your businesses and to deliver on our strategic goals.

In the lead up to Promo Show on Thursday 31 August and Friday 1 September (and the Awards Gala Dinner in between), I am hoping to connect with as many of you as possible. I want to hear your stories, learn about the things that are important to you and find out how APPA can support you in your business.

Please feel free to reach out (via email at, I am looking forward to meeting you.

Warm Regards,

Mark Kindness
General Manager, APPA
