Integrated marketing communications agency, SOCIETY, has appointed communications professional Annike Morgan as group director to open and lead its new Sydney office from mid-December 2019.

SOCIETY founder and managing director, Dena Vassallo, said she was thrilled to be working with Annike again and felt there was no one better suited to take on the role in Sydney.
Vassallo said: “Annike is a best in class operator, and well respected by the industry.
“Her understanding of the media and marketing landscape, combined with the personal attention and professionalism she brings to her work, will be a huge asset to SOCIETY as we take another step forward in our journey.
“I have worked with Annike previously, and I’m excited to see what we can do together now.”
Vassallo added: “SOCIETY has been representing clients headquartered in Sydney and Brisbane since we started, and in that time the agency has grown significantly.
“We plan to continue that through an expanded national presence and by pushing the boundaries on our integrated capabilities.
“Annike and Lachlan will be excellent leaders to our team and clients.”
