Meet the Assisters

Simone Waugh

Managing Director

Before she was Queensland’s only female big-agency MD, Simone was Queensland’s leading brand strategist. She puts consumers at the centre of everything she does, to ensure work that engages, connects and changes behaviours.

Jane Young

Client Service Director

Like every great leader, Jane gets the best out of people: whether it’s her team or her clients. Over 15 years in agencies, in the UK, NZ and Australia, this born-and-bred Scot has earned a reputation for developing exceptional client relationships.

Alex Sundqvist

Digital Projects Director

Alex makes the impossible look easy. She’s passionate about guiding clients through digital transformation and ensures that digital is at the core of their business. She’s done this for big-name clients from Europe to the Asia-Pacific.

Kirsten Twigg

Senior Copywriter

Twiggy lives and breathes ideas. And it shows. Her work has been recognised locally, nationally and internationally, picking up awards at CLIO, Web3, AMA and BADC. She is also a true craftsperson with an uncanny love of words (and punctuation).

Vicki Lee

Broadcast & Content Director

Vicki Lee is a BADC hall-of-famer for a reason: she’s Queensland’s most experienced producer, having spent years in agencies, production companies and post-production in Australia and the UK. Basically, what Vicki doesn’t know about production isn’t worth knowing.
