Jenny Brown has resigned from MediaCom after three years to join independent agency, Atomic 212°, as senior group account director within the agency’s Sydney offering. Brown is being groomed to be GM of the Sydney office.
Brown, a media young-gun, joins the Atomic 212° ranks with over 10 years industry experience and well-seasoned capabilities across client service and business leadership.
“I have grown up through the media ranks and look forward to working alongside Jason and the rest of the Atomic team. I am incredibly inspired by technology and most importantly the shift in consumer consumption. What an exciting time to join this progressive creative agency and marvel in the Atomic success,” said Brown.
The Atomic 212° recruit and rookie weight lifter previously held a business director position where she led the Revlon, Westpac and Danone Nutricia accounts amongst others, throughout her time at MediaCom.
Brown’s recruitment complements the Atomic 212° growth trajectory and follows nine hires at the Atomic Melbourne office and multiple account wins including Tabcorp, Origin Energy, Tourism NT and ANZ Stadium.
“We are crafting a flexible team of generalists and specialists to adapt to this rapidly changing industry, and our new hires are all part of this model. Jenny Brown is a generalist bringing with her a diversity of invaluable experience across Finance, Travel and Beauty,” said Atomic CEO Jason Dooris.
Atomic 212° Chairman Barry O’Brien said, “We have won business as a result of our nimble mindset. Big agencies have clunky models that restrict flexibility. Our nimble mentality is embedded within our DNA and our model will support this mentality regardless, particularly as we continue to hire.”
Atomic 212° has ramped up a series of new business divisions spanning across media, digital, data, content and creative and is in the process of hiring experienced recruits, alluding to exciting employment prospects.
Atomic 212° has offices based in Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle and Auckland, from where it services clients in Australia, New Zealand, China, USA, Singapore and Japan. For further information concerning Atomic 212° as a business please visit www.atomic212°.com.au.
