Christmas has come early for Fuse Agency, poaching back Dawn Watt from The Red Republic after a year away from the company.
Watt took up the role of general manager at Fuse earlier this month, where she is responsible for driving growth in the agency as well as client acquisitions.
Most recently, Watt worked as The Red Republic’s agency manager, and has also held roles at TwoCents and Elevate Communication, racking up over 15 years’ experience in the creative industries.
Fuse Agency’s founder and director, Samantha Brooks, said she is delighted to have Watt back working at the agency.
“Dawn and I have always shared the same values and work ethic, as well as a commitment to being the best, both for our clients and our team, so I know that together we’ll achieve all the goals we’ve set for the agency in 2017,” Brooks said.
Watt said that while she has been away from Fuse for a year, she feels like she’s never been gone.
“Sam and I share a passion for the industry and a commitment to our people, so it’s so very exciting to be back and help take Fuse to the next level,” Watt said.
“We have a very aggressive growth strategy and the best team we have ever had, so 2017 is on track to be the biggest year yet.”
