Former senior account manager, Kim McMillan has been promoted to account director after working with the company for over two years.

McMillan said: “I’m excited to be part of a dedicated, growing Aussie agency with influence and network across the country, second to none. Working with the best local and global brands each day to deliver impactful, integrated campaigns is just the icing on the cake.”
