Independent PR and communications agency Agent99 has started the new financial year with a bang, announcing a raft of new account wins.
The wins include the third annual Ginger Pride Rally for Buderim Ginger; and Zen Imports, and Australian distributor of premium outdoor, travel and leisure goods.
Zen Imports has engaged Agent99 to lead the Australian leg of the Leatherman 35th anniversary global tour and assist in organising and executing the hero event, which will see Leatherman partner with Make a Wish Foundation to raise funds and celebrate unwavering perseverance.
Leatherman’s brand manager, Evan Blake, said: “We’re so excited that that the founder, Tim Leatherman, is leading the tour around Australia to celebrate this significant milestone.
“Through Agent99’s proactive approach and expertise with executing successful, multi-layered campaigns, we know we are in good hands.”
Agent99 has also been engaged as the driving force behind brand awareness for innovation expert and thought leader Nils Vesk.
Also joining the team in this space is Zoom2U, an innovative delivery platform that connects businesses and individuals to a fast and consistently reliable community of couriers.
Agent99 will profile the company’s founder, Steve Orenstein, and the Zoom2U’s continued efforts to disrupt a highly traditional industry, whilst driving awareness with new consumer and business audiences.
The partnership recently saw a stunt executed in celebration of the new financial year where offices were delivered free ‘Sydney Smashcakes’.
Agent99 is also celebrating Australian ecommerce and retail show Online Retailer coming on board for a third year running.
Sharon Zeev Poole (pictured below), founder and director of Agent99, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be commencing this new financial year on such a strong note with clients that know how to push the boundaries and lead within their respective sectors.
“These new opportunities highlight that as a boutique agency, we have strong capabilities and ideas across PR, social and digital, and that we aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo.
“We have built up our skills over the past 11 years in two specific areas, being consumer lifestyle and corporate thought leadership, and our track record for proven results are boding really well for our clients.
“If this is any indication, I’m really excited about what this year will bring.”
