Independent digital agency Online Circle Digital has bolstered its team in Melbourne with three new hires, recruiting Brendan Sanders (pictured above, Right) as head of media, Peter Klostos (pictured above, Left) as an account director and Annabelle Gleeson (pictured above, middle) as a marketing executive.
Sanders joins Online Circle Digital from Nunn Media, where he worked as a digital account manager. Prior to that, he held roles at Cliquein, Dentsu Aegis Network and MediaCom.
Commenting on his new role, Sanders said: “It’s a great chance to work with Lucio and the team. I know the agency is undergoing a tremendous amount of growth with some amazing opportunities ahead of it. Coming to build the media practice is a great opportunity.”
Peter Klostos arrives at Online Circle Digital from Lavender, where he was senior project manager. Previously had been at M&C Saatchi, Ogilvy One in London, and 303Lowe.
Annabelle joins the agency after stints in Germany and Canada as a marketing executive focused on coordinating Online Circle Digital Academy training for clients, building and distributing the Facebook Performance Report and the Instagram State of Australia, and supporting promotional activities for the agency.
Lucio Ribeiro, co-founder and head of strategy at Online Circle Digital, said: “The appointments are part of our growth strategy. In 2016, we decided to expand our offering, building a media department and increasing our focus on CX.
“Peter brings years of experience as a CX, business and project leadership. His experience in working with large brands like Vodafone, Telstra, Qantas and Energizer will help the agency and our clients to deliver extraordinary and agile work.”
