Sydney-based agency The Pulse has announced the appointment of Dillon Hicks to the newly created role of head of production.

Michelle Schuberg, general manager of The Pulse, said Hicks will play a key role in the agency’s continued growth.

“To be able to attract a world-class talent like Dillon is testament to the great team we have here and the exciting future ahead.”
