Icon Agency has boosted its senior leadership team promoting David Radestock (right) to the newly created role of executive director of communications and promoting Carly Vale (left) as the agency’s new business operations director.

Formerly director of technology, Radestock’s promotion to executive director sees him lead Icon’s Communications department and its impressive roster of tech clients spearheaded by Slack, Salesforce and Schneider Electric.

Icon Agency managing director, Joanne Painter said Radestock was a perfect fit to lead the communications team, bringing experience across sectors and communications disciplines via his work with major brands, including Microsoft, American Express, Lenovo, Twitter and Commonwealth Bank.

Says Painter: “Since joining Icon earlier this year, David quickly earned the trust and respect of the entire agency. His passion and expertise have been clear from day one and ultimately he was an obvious choice to take on this critical leadership role.”

Says Radestock: “This is a fantastic opportunity to build on Icon’s proud record over the past two decades and deliver best-in-class, differentiated work for the best organisations in Australia and worldwide. I’m proud to do so alongside a passionate, talented and supportive team, and I can’t wait to get started”.
