PUSH Collective

Erminio Putignano is co-founder and managing director of PUSH Collective, an Australian-based brand consultancy working with organisations undergoing deep business and cultural transformations across a wide range of sectors, from banking and fashion to universities and sports.


Prior to founding his own agency, Erminio was Managing Director of FutureBrand Australia, and has also held senior strategy and management roles at Sapient and at McCann Erickson.
