Melbourne based brandable products and merchandise agency Good Things has opened its second Australian office as the company’s national expansion plans are set in motion.
With the appointment of Chris Kimpton (right in main photo) and Cameron Brown (left in main photo) as account managers, both new hires bring a strong travel industry background to the team, and have 10 years combined experience in sales and consultancy roles with leading Australian travel agents.
With clients such as TikTok, AfterPay, Mad Mex and Vegemite, cofounder and Sales Director, Tim Molloy, will lead the Good Things expansion into the Sydney market having relocated earlier in the year with his family to head up the office.
Speaking of the move to Sydney, Molloy said: “Since entering the market I’ve been very optimistic about the opportunities this move will bring to Good Things, as we rapidly grow the team and continuously meet the demand we are seeing from clients. Three staff members have already joined me at the Sydney office and we are currently looking to hire an inbound sales representative to also become a part of the team.”
“Despite COVID restrictions enforcing a lockdown of the Melbourne head office and therefore delays on deliveries, the team’s quick pivot led us to source relevant COVID-friendly products such as branded hand sanitisers, face masks, and employee wellness packs. This resulted in us receiving great client retention and referrals, something we are extremely grateful for during these difficult times.”
Jeremy Chen, cofounder and Marketing Director of Good Things, said the need for a Sydney office became apparent at the end of 2019 with a number of existing clients already based there and an obvious opportunity to fill a gap in the market to supply merchandise to the large financial and technology firms established in Sydney.
“We have a number of clients who have head offices in Sydney and as they refer us to their network, our client pool continues to grow. It’s become obvious that to continue providing our personalised engagement with each client we need to better service the Sydney market on the ground,” Chen said.
“We are keen to continue our national expansion and are already considering the next steps of this process. To keep momentum going, we have discussed the possibility of utilising acquisitions to accelerate the process, and we really see this as a viable opportunity for the company to thrive.”
