Tukua said she’s looking forward to a post-COVID decade full of change and innovation.

“After some time off, it’s so good to be back, and most importantly with a dynamic and cutting-edge team,” she said.

“I immediately connected with Paul, Matt and Pete’s sincerity and admired their regard for positive and productive client relationships.

“Once we get past Covid, this next decade will be filled with change and reinvention. Channel T and other independents will be driving the shape advertising agencies take in the future.”

Channel T managing director Paul Rhodes said Tukua will made an immediate impact at his agency.

“Sarah has a passion for growing brands by championing effective creative, and we are confident that she will make an instant impact with our clients and teams.”

Channel T was appointed by Australian Liquor Marketers as its strategic and creative agency last month, and has since rolled out campaigns for Cellarbrations and The Bottle-O.
