Dentsu QLD has made three strategic senior hires, following recently signing on Amazonia and The Brisbane Heat, and successfully retaining The Coffee Club after a competitive review.
The dentsu QLD team has also extended partnerships with Great Southern Bank, Aveo and the Foundation Education Group.
The extension of these partnerships has contributed to more than 10% growth in revenue year on year for the network and has been accompanied by +20% growth in employee engagement and significant improvement in market NPS over the same period.
Each Brisbane-based appointment is critical to extending the local capability of the agency network.
Daniel Paull joins as business intelligence lead, iProspect. With over seven-years’ experience across marketing, data and tech, Daniel will focus on scaling the data and intelligence offering in the agency.
Kelly Jack is appointed as client partner, Carat. Kelly joins from Wavemaker Melbourne and brings more than 15 years of media agency experience into the group. In her previous role, Kelly led accounts including Australia Post, a2Milk, HondaMPE and IG Markets.
Jeremy Thomas joins as digital strategist in customer experience, Merkle. Bringing seven-years experience in advertising and marketing technology, and performance and digital media, most recently Jeremy was head of performance at Auto & Generals Compare The Market.
Dentsu QLD managing director Chris Ernst said: “It has been a big 12 months for the dentsu Queensland team, and I could not be prouder of what we have achieved.
"As a team, we look at how problems can be solved and ideas delivered through three distinct lenses: what is good for clients, is good for dentsu, and is good for society.
"The results have been clear – increased business performance, and importantly, increased employee engagement.
"I look forward to continuing growing this team with likeminded, awesome individuals such as Daniel, Kelly, and Jeremy.”
