Both Melissa and Susannah bring years of experience and expertise in their respective sectors to their new roles in Melbourne and continue the office’s expansion in recent months.
Melissa joins the Aquent Melbourne team after 13 years working in Aquent’s flagship office in Boston. Throughout her distinguished career, she has proven herself a dedicated and versatile agent, having consulted with and placed high-quality creative talent in a range of industries including retail/FMCG, financial and investment services and corporate communications.
Extremely well-versed in Aquent’s unique processes for clients and talent alike, Melissa has had an immediate impact on the Melbourne business, both connecting with and further developing existing relationships as well as actively seeking out and winning new business.
Susannah, meanwhile, joins Aquent with a traditional print background but most recently worked for three years recruiting digital talent in the creative and marketing sectors in London. She has vast experience sourcing high-end digital talent – including front and back-end developers, producers and content managers - for large blue chip companies and is continuing Aquent’s increasing specialisation into the digital space.
Aquent Melbourne Area Manager Eamonn O'Cruthuir said the addition of both Melissa and Susannah would position Aquent extremely well to take advantage of rising business levels across the creative and digital sectors.
“Both Melissa and Susannah bring unique qualities and excellent experience to our expanding Melbourne team,” O'Cruthuir said.
“Melissa, through her long career with Aquent, has garnered a well-deserved reputation for excellent talent and client service, in addition to displaying a firm commitment to Aquent’s core values.
“Similarly, Susannah brings to our team an impressive understanding of the rapidly developing digital landscape and is already establishing herself as a knowledgeable and approachable Agent.
“Both are already proving themselves as indispensible members of our team and I look forward to our talent and client bases connecting with them both in due course.”
