Fisher finished up at Initiative in August after nearly 13 years at the agency.

Hatched Media managing director and founder, Jack Byrne, said: “I am chuffed to have someone with Stephen’s business acumen and experience join the team.

“Not only does he bring a wealth of knowledge and integrity in the media and communications landscape, he’s a bloody great bloke and shares similar values to the business and how we should go about it, making him the obvious choice for this senior management role.”

Fisher will take on the role of overseeing the day-to-day management of the agency as well as assisting the management team in shaping and building on the agency’s capabilities and offering to its current and future clients.

He said: “There is no doubt that the independent agency space is flourishing, with clients looking for partners with both the agility and smarts that the sector is able to offer.

“Jack has created a great business over the last few years and is wholly focused on his clients and working in partnership with them. What’s really impressed me are the values he lives by within the business, ensuring a well-resourced, balanced and happy team.

“I’m very excited to be joining Hatched and can’t wait to help the team grow the business by adding to the great foundation already built.”

Hatched Media’s current client roster include the likes of Dairy Australia, Sensis, Fernwood Fitness, Dennis Family Corporation, Funlab (Strike Bowling & Skyzone), Henly Properties, Village Cinemas, Hairhouse Warehouse, Retail Zoo (incl. Boost Juice & Cibo Espresso), Capi Sparkling, Art Series Hotels, Melbourne Storm, Village Building Co, VTAC, Advanced Hair Studios and Huawei.
