Icon Agency has grown its Sydney footprint with an expanded office while announcing four new hires across the business.

The new, two-storey office is located on the water at Pyrmont’s Jones Bay Wharf and houses an expanded Sydney team.

“Our pace of growth over the last two years has been astounding,” said Icon Agency co-founder and managing director, Joanne Painter.

“From 38 people in late 2020 to almost 80 staff now, this rapid expansion has been an exhilarating journey, which we hope to continue.”

Leading recent appointments based in Sydney we welcome Carly Vale, formerly senior creative producer at Ogilvy Public Relations, joining Icon as senior program director on the Department of Health project.

Meanwhile, Carmen Famularo joins the digital team as the senior UX/UI designer, and the Sydney PR team welcomes two new account executives, Zoe Benham and Giorgia Rapella.

Magdalena Kulbicka also joins the team, and will head up Icon’s recently launched digital content production business, The Content Garden, located in Victoria’s innovation hub of Cremorne.

Furthermore, Gerard Roche has been promoted to the Group’s chief operating officer.
