Apparent has promoted long serving account management executive Brook Miller to the newly created role of client services director, with Candice Lombard promoted to integration director.
Miller (pictured, right) has risen through the ranks of Apparent over the past nine years and is described as “instrumental” in managing the development of its relationships with global clients, including US-based Cisco, VMware and LinkedIn.
Starting as an account manager when there were just 15 employees, she now leads client services at the agency, which has a team of more than 120 and in excess of 30 clients. Before joining Apparent, she worked at BMF and Euro RSCG.
Suzy Smiley, managing director at Apparent, said: “Brook is an exceptional client leader. She has consistently delivered for our clients and has played an invaluable consulting role in the development of the business particularly in building the C-Suite relationships with our international clients.
“This promotion, to the newly created role of client services director, is recognition of this and will position us well for our next growth phase.”
The Sydney headquartered agency has seen new business growth in recent years. In addition to its global clients, it currently works with Cricket Australia, Campari Group, Zip Co, the Australian Government, Nikon, Chartered Accountants and others.
Speaking on her promotion, Miller said: “Having been with Apparent for almost ten years, I’m delighted to have been appointed CSD and lead the account management team. I’m looking forward to contributing to the continued evolution of the agency.”
The agency has also promoted Candice Lombard (pictured, left) to the role of integration director, a newly created role to lead operations across account and creative services teams. She joined Apparent in 2019 as a business director and has also worked at R/GA, Cummins & Partners and Sibling.
Miller added: “We’re so fortunate to have Candice as part of our team. She brings a wealth of experience and EQ to the role and I’m incredibly excited to partner with her to deliver excellence across our service and operations.”
