Amanda Cummergen, 2IC, Agent99 Public Relations said: “I had a similar role in the past for five years which I absolutely adored. I was enticed in-house for a period of time but I missed the buzz and pace of agency life. So, this was my opportunity to get back to what I love!

“What attracted me to the role was Agent99’s excellent reputation and creative work. Sharon has built an amazing agency, but she is keen to grow the size and expand the range of services we offer. I was instantly attracted to her vision and saw the opportunity for me to contribute to her future plans and ongoing success.

“The agency has a great culture, it’s warm and welcoming and I feel like I’ve come home. The team is driven and completely results-focused. I have honestly been amazed by the achievements of individual team members and their sheer tenacity for their jobs and clients.”
