In his new role, Epstein will oversee the company’s client portfolio and manage the team of 14 account managers. He will begin his role at the start of 2020 in Melbourne.

Epstein said watching the agency’s growth from afar inspired him to want to become a part of it.

“I have been watching and admiring King Kong’s unflinching determination to deliver client results, along with their rapid growth in this market, and knew it was a company I wanted to be part of. To be offered a leadership role and the chance to work with King Kong’s enviable list of clients, as well as their top account managers, is extremely exciting,” Epstein said.

“I am incredibly eager to work alongside such a wonderful group of people who have both individually and collectively played key roles in growing King Kong under the leadership of Sabri [Suby]. I look forward to bringing my experience and passion to the business, and inspiring the team and clients alike to create meaningful and innovative work that makes a real difference.”

King Kong founder, Sabri Suby, said this was a strategic hire for the agency.

“I am extremely excited we have secured Adrian as our head of digital account management. Adrian will lead our best and brightest and will report directly into me. It is a big hire for the company and we are expecting big things from Adrian, which I know he can deliver,” Suby said.

“As this was a strategic hire for us, we took the time to find the right person to ensure they had the skills set, were a good cultural fit, but would also be focused on delivering our 100% client commitment of success. We are a business on a steep upward trajectory and I believe this is largely due to our focus on generating real results for our clients. With Adrian’s experience in one of Australia’s leading agencies, he had the right mix of focus on people as well as clients. I can’t wait to see what Adrian can deliver for us.”
