Prior to that, Trombetta held APAC and UK leadership roles at global public relations and integrated communications agency, H+K Strategies.
Trombetta said of her new role: “After a remarkable journey in creative hubs in London and Hong Kong, it will be exciting to bring fresh energy and perspective to this dynamic market and work alongside some of the best in the business on home soil.
“Red Agency’s formidable growth and palpable ambition to connect brands to culture, creates a compelling canvas to experiment and expand”.
Red Agency is part of the Havas PR collective.
Havas Group chairman Anthony Freedman said: “Sarah is a tenacious leader with her eye firmly on innovating for the future.
“We believe her unique blend of experience across diverse brand communication agencies and geographies will bring a new dimension to our shared vision for Red Agency as a critical player within the Havas Group”.
