Global marketing, design and digital staffing agency – Aquent – has hired experienced marketing Agent, Alex Kenning and returning creative Agent, Margaret Hilliard to its Adelaide team.
Both Alex and Margaret bring years of experience and expertise in their respective sectors to their new roles in Adelaide.
“Our Adelaide business is key a location for Aquent and I am excited with the calibre of skills and experience that Alex and Margaret bring to our business,” said Simon Lusty, Aquent Regional Director for Australia and New Zealand. “I feel confident that their level of business acumen, their service oriented approach, combined with their creative and marketing industry knowledge will allow them to partner well with both Aquent’s clients and talent resulting in powerful partnerships.”
Alex Kenning has recently joined Aquent in Adelaide to manage their marketing and agency account services recruitment across South Australia. Alex began his career in recruitment almost 10 years ago working for a London-based, boutique staffing company, specialising in media, advertising and marketing recruitment. He worked his way up the ladder and for the past three years, managed the company, whilst still recruiting staff from executive to director level for some of the world’s largest media and advertising organisations.
Alex is passionate about recruitment and believes in a consultative, 360° approach to best understand the requirements of the clients and talent he represents. “I look forward to using my knowledge and experience to build close working relationships with South Australia’s leading businesses and top marketing talent, and to delivering the bespoke staffing solutions and services that only Aquent can offer,” Alex adds.
Margaret Hilliard returns to Aquent and to Adelaide after working adventures interstate and abroad. Coming from a background in print production and design which developed into project management of web and intranet sites, Margaret has the unique advantage of having first-hand knowledge of what Aquent’s clients need and what their talent are looking for. Add to that the fact that she has had prior experience as both an Aquent Agent and an Aquent freelancer, she has the perfect mix of knowledge and experience and has had an immediate impact on the Adelaide business.
“It’s great to be back in my home town and to be part of the Aquent team again,” says Margaret Hilliard. “My prior experience with Aquent, and my design industry knowledge has really stood me in good stead and it’s so great to be able to hit the ground running.”
