Five by Five Global welcomes new staffBy Jonas Lopez in Marcoms News on Wednesday, 20th October 2021 at 11:39am
Nigel Powell is in as business manager, bringing with him over 40 years’ organizational experience from being tour manager of Frontier Touring Co, working closely with the late founder Michael Gudinski. The move is Powell’s first foray into the communications circuit.
“As Michael Gudinski’s right-hand man for several decades, Nigel’s life experiences read like a dream to me. He’s a fixer, a do-er, and gets shit done. He organises and does things properly: old school to the core, I cannot be more complimentary than that. I’m sure our office will run like a well-oiled machine when we are all back together under one roof,” said Five by Five managing director Matt Lawton.
Tiffany Gozal is onboard as designer. A graduate of UNSW, she recently finished up a year as lead graphic designer with RALLY4EVERAUS.
Dan Craig signs up as art director, fresh from four months in a similar role with DDB Group Australia. He previously spent a month with Five by Five on a freelance project this year.
Charlie Dejean joins as copywriter. He was recently named one of AWARD School’s ten best students, and was senior client development coordinator with Australian Government Solicitor.
“Every person, regardless of their age, cultural background, disability, gender, sexual orientation and socio-economic background deserves to feel like they belong in their workplace and be valued for their thinking and contribution. This sense of belonging will result in a stronger business, a better workplace and ultimately better work for our clients,” added Lawton.
