Agent99 has announced the promotion of two staff members, as well as appointing a new team member off the back of adding two high-profile clients to its portfolio.
Agent99 has for a second year secured the business of leading stationery company Collins Debden, who offer quality and innovative organisational solutions – including diaries, notebooks, personal organisers and planners.

Agent99 will be supporting this campaign with strong media relations, targeted influencer outreach strategies and specific product placements.
This campaign is dual fold, as Collins Debden is also celebrating their 200 Year Anniversary of the Collins brand, which will see the agency managing their VIP Bicentennial Event, supported by extensive media and influencer engagement and social media-based competitions.
Collins Debden general manager, Matthew Zec said: “Having previously worked with Agent99 on last year’s campaign, we are very pleased with what they’ve achieved for our brand.
“I’m excited to see what they pull off in 2019!”
