Firstly, Thinkerbell has announced that Phillippa Netolicky has joined the team as general manager, Thinkerbell North (Sydney).
Says Margie Reid, CEO, Thinkerbell: “Rounding out the management of Thinkerbell North, we’ve found the perfect person in Philippa. She’s a brilliantly well rounded communications professional having worked as both a senior creative as well as on the business management side. She brings a non-siloed, progressive mindset to our agency and will fit like a glove.”
Says Netolicky: “Thinkerbell’s all-in model appeals to me. I was looking for an independent agency willing to find a better way of doing things. Thinkerbell is it.”
Netolicky joins managing partner Jerker Fagerström, and executive creative tinker Paul Swann, as leaders of the Thinkerbell North office.
In other news Thinkerbell has just been crowned Campaign Brief Agency of The Year, making the agency kind of officially the ‘hottest’ agency in Australia.
Says Jim Ingram: “Thinkerbell is now an agency that’s 5 years old and 150 people strong. It’s wonderful that the growth of the agency has come off the back of recognised brand building creative work. We’re incredibly proud, and thankful to everyone who’s part of the Thinkerbell community. We obviously do things a little differently, and this is just further evidence that our measured magic approach to everything we do is working.”
The recognition is in addition to Bestads recognising them as the most creative agency in the world (for two years in a row).
