Geffen said he was excited and humbled to join the agency alongside associate creative director Kieran Moroney and ECD Jake Barrow.

Also joining the agency is creative duo Kate Noonan and Michelle See-Tho, as art director and copywriter, respectively.

Noonan has previously worked as a graphic designer at Anaconda and Workwear Group. See-Tho has recently been a social content and freelance writer. Noonan and See-Tho completed the AWARD school program earlier this year.

Barrow said of the new appointments: “We truly have world-class talent in Kieran and Shane, with their unique and proven approach to problem-solving they make a formidable team. Combined with the addition of young guns Kate and Michelle, our creative offering couldn’t be stronger.”

Last week, it was announced that VMLY&R Melbourne had retained the creative account for Monash University, a relationship it has had since 2015.
