The Brand Agency, Perth snares top planner from South African hotshop The Jupiter Drawing Room

GillianSmith.jpgGillian Smith has joined The Brand Agency, Perth's strategic planning department from the highly regarded South African agency, The Jupiter Drawing Room.

In a long career at the agency, Smith worked as an insight strategist and before that was a group account director for six years. Her experience includes two of SA's biggest accounts, Edcon and Nedbank.

Brand's head of strategy Paul Yole said that the appointment reflected The Brand Agency's focus on recruiting high calibre individuals who can work to international standards: "Although still in her early thirties, Gillian is a very senior acquisition who will bring a new perspective to our clients and will challenge the rest of us to keep stretching ourselves. This is a major coup for Perth's Planning resource," said Yole.
