Teena Jameson quits Mitchells Brisbane to start Media Circus

Founding MD of Mitchell & Partners Brisbane Teena Jameson is leaving to start her new media agency called Media Circus.

The new full service shop is a joint venture with Aegis Media, and starts life with Carpet Choice as its founding client – an account wrested from Starcom Melbourne.

Launching on July 1, Media Circus will operate independently from premises in Robertson Street in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.

Jameson will be partnered by Mitchell group account director, Katrina Droulers with whom she has worked closely, and client service director Jon Cole.

Jameson said that her new agency would be positioned around performance, service quality and relationships with the client, creative agencies and media owners.

She cited the recently expressed intention of UM to reposition itself as a ‘big boutique’ as recognition of “the difficulty faced by multinational media agencies in delivering the level of responsiveness, quality, ideas and service that clients expect.”

“We really can offer our clients the best of both worlds – highly personalised service, matched with the biggest and best media deals,” she said.

There will also be an emphasis on work/life balance. “My aim will be to work alongside people for whom media is, or will become their passion.  If you don’t love what you do, you should do something else”, she said.
