Head of Initiative Perth, Luke O’Sullivan, said agency staff numbers were up 33 per cent on last year, in parallel to specific investments in digital and data capabilities to elevate the quality of client work.
“It’s been a great year for us, built upon the quality of people and teamwork,” said O’Sullivan.
