Independent creative agency Cocogun has hired key talent: a new business partner, a designer and a business director/copywriter, a newly-created hybrid role.

Christine Watts, formerly of Wunderman and 303 MullenLow, has joined as business partner, spearheading new business alongside MD and co-founder Chiquita King.  

“I’ve been dreaming of working at a company that is full of like minded people who are looking to do good in the world,": Watts said.

"I thought I would need to leave the agency side and move into a not-for-profit or company whose mission aligned with my own. Never did I imagine that there was an agency like Cocogun - bursting with extremely talented individuals who are focused on creating spectacular work for their clients through ideas that matter. I found my unicorn, and I am so stoked to be joining the team.”

Former APAC marketing and communications lead at Macquarie and Jawun Indigenous Corporate Partnerships Alumni, Kirsty Reynolds has joined Cocogun in a newly-created business director and copywriter, working closely with both King and Creative Partner, Ant Melder.

“I’m so excited to be taking on the hybrid role that CK and Ant created for me," said Reynolds.

"It’s the perfect blend of creativity, innovation, and purpose. I love being on both sides of the fence - working with clients directly - and being in the thick of ideation with the creative team.”

Cocogun’s new designer is Shev Tan, who brings a unique blend of skills including design, illustration, editing of video and motion graphics.

"It’s a joy to be a part of a team that prioritises doing good work with a good heart," said Tan. "I'm excited to see where this opportunity takes me.”
