Wired Nabs Junkee Studio’s Head Of Client Services For Senior Role

One of Australia’s fastest growing independent agencies, The Wired Agency [Wired] has today announced the hire of Samantha Nunura (nee Bradford) as group business director.  

After continued growth at Wired of more than 50 percent in revenue from existing clients alone, the newly created role will see Samantha (pictured above on the middle-right) play an important part in overseeing the agency’s key accounts, managing key people, and supporting the managing director and two managing partners on key business development initiatives.

Having spent the last seven years at one of Australia’s leading youth publishers and content agencies, Junkee Media in her latest role as head of client services for Junkee Studio (part of oOh! Media), Samantha will use her experience in high level account services and strategy, to further deepen Wired’s capabilities and bring in some fresh new thinking.

With her incredible big-brand experience, having worked across Netflix, Westpac, AMEX and Qantas, Samantha joins Wired at the top of its game, achieving record retention rates of its people and over 70% compound annual growth rates in revenue over the past 5 years; on track to record an even higher result for this financial year.  

Samantha comments on joining Wired;

“I am thrilled to join the team at Wired. I continue to be blown away by their reputation in the market, their culture and incredible team and of course their work and approach to digital marketing. We have an exciting time ahead and I’m honoured to take on the role of Group Business Director.”  

Founder and managing director of Wired, Angela Hampton (in the image above on the very left) also comments on the key hire;

“What a hire we’ve found in Samantha!  It’s pretty rare to come across someone who has such a diverse set of skills having essentially worked for an agency inside a publishing house.  From the minute I met her, I felt genuine warmth and passion; and she also cracked a few jokes upfront so I knew she’d fit in well at Wired.   

“We’re a few years old now as an agency and with plans to focus on fewer, bigger, better, always putting our people first, Sam is coming in at the perfect time to make a genuine difference.”  

Wired has grown by more than 33% in full time staff this year alone, and has a further six roles available. Facing a tough talent market, they recently launched their own recruitment drive called, Recruit your Mates where $10,000 per role is up for grabs for successful placements, totalling $60,000. 

Wired’s current open roles include

  • social media executive (on-page)
  • digital performance account manager
  • digital designer
  • social media specialist (off-page)
  • campaign manager
  • social media account manager

The Wired Agency’s purpose is to “move digitally, humanly” by specialising in strategy, insight and creative for content, social, search, placement & partnerships. Key clients include Pizza Hut, Assembly Label, Indeed, Chatime, Maurie & Eve, Visit Korea, Viking Cruises, Georg Jensen, and TEDx
