Queensland-based creative agency PublicisQ has strengthened its digital and client leadership capabilities with the addition of two senior executives who have both joined the agency’s leadership team.
Jane Young (pictured above, left) has joined PublicisQ as client services director, while Alexandra Sundqvist (pictured above, right) has been appointed as digital projects director.
Young was formerly general manager of Ogilvy Brisbane and has a 15-year career working in the UK, New Zealand and Australia at high-profile agencies including DLKW and Sapient.
At PublicisQ, she will focus on the efficiency and unity of the agency teams developing client campaigns.
Sundqvist has more than 10 years’ experience in the digital industry, working in well-known agencies in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region including Deasign in Stockholm, Ogilvy and digital consultantcy Hyper Island.
At PublicisQ, she will focus on expanding and integrating digital specialisations within the agency to deliver end-to-end solutions that meet changing customer expectations and opportunities.
PublicisQ managing director Simone Waugh (pictured above, centre) said both Young and Sundqvist bring high levels of expertise to the agency, and are both specialists in shaping agencies’ capabilities for clients.
“We are constantly evolving to differentiate the agency in two ways – our goal of championing Queensland creativity and supporting that through skills in digital and data integration, customer experience, design, shopper marketing and activations,” she said.
Sundqvist and Young are the latest senior appointments of PublicisQ. In August, the agency hired Lee Griffin as creative director and David Schaak as its first head of art.
