Australian content-lead creative services and strategy agency, KONTENTED, has announced two key staff appointments, with Adam Noakes joining the company as head of client services and Jessica Doyle joining the business as client service manager.
Sydney based KONTENTED was founded four years ago by managing director Kate Edwards and counts Universal Music, PlayStation, Nando’s and Kennards Hire amongst its clients.
Adam Noakes takes up the newly created role of head of client services. Noakes was most recently principal director and owner at marketing and advertising consultancy William Hast, servicing clients such as Just Cuts and Toyota. In the past 12 years, Noakes has owned and operated his own agencies as well as held various senior agency positions in both the UK and Australia, having worked with some of the largest international brands including Canon, Nestle, Motorola, McAfee, Fitness First and Westfield.
On joining KONTENTED, Noakes said, “Joining the team at KONTENTED was a no-brainer for me. It allows William Hast’s clients to utilise a full service creative offering, whilst maintaining a focused digital push. Kate’s tenacious style flows through the agency and is the perfect complement to my own style and client roster. Modern marketing is all about collaboration, an ethos that is embedded at KONTENTED, so merging William Hast into the KONTENTED fold is a true collaboration of service and skill sets – which should stand to greatly benefit all parties, people and clients.”
Also joining the KONTENTED team is Jessica Doyle, who joins the company from Fairfax Media.
“I’m incredibly excited to be joining a team who are challenging the industry’s agency model,” said Doyle. “It’s great to come onboard at KONTENTED to work with some amazing clients and really groundbreaking projects for 2015 and beyond.”
Speaking on these two major hires, KONTENTED’s founder and managing director, Kate Edwards, said, “The two biggest compliments any company can receive is to attract really innovative clients and then add new entrepreneurial, creative and incredibly capable talent to its ranks, and we’ve been fortunate to do both recently. Adding Adam to our team is one of the most exciting announcements in KONTENTED’s four years to date. He brings with him a wealth of experience, digital aptitude and ability that is second to none – Adam will benefit our KONTENTED ecosystem in every aspect. Jess has a record for flawless client delivery andhas a track record that speaks volumes of her can-do attitude. Both appointments are a founder’s dream come true. And this is just the beginning…”
