Purpose-driven integrated communications agency Think HQ has announced a raft of appointments across new business, research, digital and PR as the business enters a new phase of growth.

New hires include business development director Sam Ireland, research analyst Dr Andre Gulyas, digital  content specialist Beaurey Chan, senior account executive Laura Kennewell and account director (PR) Eleanor McLeod.

Ireland will lead the new business team with a remit to take Think HQ’s offering to values-aligned commercial clients – a new market for the agency that has until now focused on government and for-purpose clients including not for profits.

Ireland’s 15 years of local and international experience in media sales and marketing includes roles with Nine Entertainment and The Guardian Australia.

Most recently, he worked in a communications capacity on a United Nations project to reduce plastic waste in oceans.

Gulyas will use his expertise in research design, organisational psychology and data-driven quantitative analyses to spearhead a new team integrating research into campaign builds from the outset.

A social science research expert, Gulyas has spent more than a decade working in academic and industry settings. His research has been published in peer-reviewed journals and he has presented his work internationally.

Chan, Kennewell and McLeod’s appointments expand the agency’s capacity in PR, digital content and account services.

Digital content specialist Chan joins from her role as content production manager at Columbus where she was responsible for production of content for clients including Officeworks, The Coffee Club and the Federal Government. She has also worked as a content manager at Assemblo.

Kennewell has worked on some of Australia’s biggest retail campaigns for clients including Myer, Bunnings and Kmart and also brings experience in the sustainable retail sector.

McLeod has worked in PR roles in the UK and Australia, including as senior communications specialist at the BBC, senior account management at Cox Inall Change, and in a partnership and events advisory position at Yarra Trams.

Think HQ founder and managing director Jen Sharpe said: “Following a sustained period of rapid growth, we have added people to almost every team – and built some new ones over the past quarter.”

“It’s an exciting time for our business – the bigger we grow, the more social impact we can have. Our talented new team members will help drive our expansion and evolution as the most inclusive agency in Australia.”

The new appointments follow the industry-leading appointment of Professor Shane Hearn to the newly created role of head, First Nations engagement and communication in June.

Network 10 Axes Gladiators

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
