Brett Carty, managing director of Advertising Associates, said that after many years of servicing national accounts out of Melbourne, it was great to have a permanent footprint in Sydney to elevate AA’s client service delivery even more.

“It’s an exciting time to be involved with such a progressive stable of long-term clients and adding Peter’s expertise and guidance to the team represents another significant step in bolstering our commitment to delivering a competitive edge for our clients across all media,” Carty said.

The agency’s commitment to KIA Australia over the last 9 years has seen them recently add KIA’s digital services to the traditional media services and will see them continue to work closely across all comms to help continue to grow the KIA brand.
