Recruitment consultancy supporting advertising, design, in-house and digital agencies Talent Run has been launched by former Advertising Council Australia (ACA) Victorian state manager Amy Lee.
Having worked in advertising for 20 years, Lee started her career in account services at George Patts Melbourne and has also worked in several network and independent agencies in Melbourne and Auckland including Ogilvy, HBK and Big Red.
Rebecca Robertson, Howatson+Company managing partner, said Lee's impressive network and industry knowledge makes her the perfect recruiter.
"She has consistently been a beacon in the Victorian ad industry, leading numerous initiatives for Melbourne agencies," Robertson said.
"We truly value her hard work and dedicated efforts and wish her every success.”
For seven years as the Victorian State Manager at ACA, Amy worked closely with Melbourne’s creative community, hosting industry panel and networking events, re-launching Youngbloods Victoria, launching the annual Victorian agency netball competition, launching AWARD School’s online program, and mentoring juniors entering advertising.
Lee said this has been her dream for a long time.
"I am passionate about the industry and I am looking forward to partnering with many agencies to provide continued support to individuals looking to further their careers,” Lee said.
Tony Hale, ACA CEO, said Lee will be greatly missed by ACA.
"She was integral to building a strong community and membership base in Melbourne," Hale said.
"We wish her all the best with Talent Run. She will do exceptionally well.”
