Starcom Melbourne adds Verity Martin and four new account coordinators

Starcom Melbourne has made a number of new hires to its business and account management team.

New joiner Verity Martin (nee Goold) has joined Starcom as business director for the Ego Pharmaceuticals, Alcon, Metricon and Red Energy accounts. Martin was previously a client partner at Vizeum, and more recently iProspect where she worked across clients including BMW, Kathmandu and MYOB. She has also previously worked at Starcom Melbourne as an account executive.


Also joining the Melbourne office are Thomas Ho, Bianca Jones and Daniella Sinni who come in as account coordinators; and Ashlee Read as a digital executive. The appointments follow the hire of Roger Lintzeris at the end of last year, charged with leading strategy in the Melbourne market.

Starcom Melbourne MD, Stuart Jaffray said of Martin’s appointment: “I had the pleasure of working with Verity as client during my time at BMW, and so I know that her client service skills and planning acumen will be a real asset to our client partners. I’m delighted that she has come back to the agency – Verity embodies the T-shaped talent that we are looking to build through our People Powered Growth strategic framework.”

Starcom Melbourne also has four new interns from a variety of universities joining this week.

“Historically, we’ve seen a number of people go on to become full-time employees at the agency,” said Jaffray. “One of our new starters Thomas Ho interned with us last year.”
