Think HQ sets up shop in Sydney with team of four

Social change agency Think HQ is open for business in Sydney, expanding its footprint to Surry Hills with a team of four.

The agency, which has been Melbourne-based so far, hired group account director Blake Mason, account directors Tom Hines and Nickie Flambouras, plus account manager Evie McCullough, to lay the groundwork for Sydney.

Think HQ founder and managing director Jen Sharpe said, “At a time when many brands and agencies are just embarking on their journey addressing social impact and purpose, Think HQ has been operating for 13 years with an unwavering positive impact at our core.

“We believed it was time we entered the country’s biggest market to share our unique approach to inclusive communications and creative with even more organisations.

“I can’t think of a better team to kick off our Sydney operations in earnest. Their diverse and complementary skills cover so many bases, and they will work in seamlessly with our expert CALD, First Nations, creative and production teams and resources in Melbourne as needed, too.”

Mason joins from Herd MSL, and brings more than 12 years’ expertise with NPF, government and corporate organisations, across strategy, stakeholder engagement, CALD and Indigenous communications, media, arts and tourism, environment, and financial, health, and human services.

Flambouras, an experienced engagement leader across government, not-for-profits and commercial organisations, joins from Multicultural NSW.

Hines joined Think HQ from Bite Communications where he worked as senior account manager, and brings creative skills across content, editorial and digital publishing gained in roles with AthletesVoice and Fox Sports Australia.

McCullough has spent four years working in communications and event management roles in the NFP sector, most recently as communications manager at Ireland’s leading international affairs think-tank, the Institute of International and European Affairs.
