Says Joanne Painter, Icon group managing director: "Paul's appointment signals an exciting new
chapter in Icon's growth, and significantly enhances the strength of our senior leadership team.

"As one of Melbourne's leading ad agency principals, Paul brings a wealth of experience and
contacts. In his new role as business director, across the Icon group, Paul will lead a strategic
agency review as well as driving growth across the digital, design and PR divisions.

The newly appointed Cooke said Icon's integration of strategic communication, digital and design
presents an interesting and exciting opportunity.

industry sectors. Donovan has worked for leading agencies in Sydney, Newcastle and Melbourne specialising in media relations, stakeholder and community relations and issues management.
