Welcome Arletta!

February 22, 2024


Drumroll, please! We’re very excited to announce our newly appointed Senior Executive Director, Arletta Turnbull, who has joined our team in Melbourne. Oozing years of experience, Arletta has hit the ground running and we couldn’t be more excited to have her on board! Armed with fresh faced enthusiasm and a passion to grow the Melbourne team, this is a match made in heaven.


We always insist on asking our ‘welcome’ questions to newbies in their first week… see Arletta’s answers below:

  1. Why Painted Dog? What attracted you to us?

I was attracted to so many things! I loved the genuineness and transparency of everyone I met. Philosophically it all aligned – hungry for insights, committed to best-in-class client service, doing things smart, working hard, and having a great time doing it all.

  1. What are you most excited about / looking forward to in your role?

Getting to know everyone is always a fun part. Finding out all the personalities, different interests, and skills. I’m mostly looking forward to growing the business here with an incredible team, while taking risks, doing things differently and standing out from the pack here in Melbourne. We do it differently and I can’t wait to show the market everything we have to offer.

  1. What was the highlight of your first week?

Exploring Carlton! Loving this area.

  1. Best piece of advice you received from another staff member so far?
