New Zealand content strategy and creation agency, Augusto, is expanding its office in New York City. Not bad for an agency that started life in a garage just ten years ago.
“We’ve seen the demand for content strategy and creation grow massively over the last 10 years, and this is undoubtedly where we have built our sweet spot,” says founder Michelle Walshe.
As of today both of Augusto’s founders, Leon Kirkbeck and Michelle Walshe, will be based in New York to service a growing group of US-based clients that include AIG, NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, Blunt USA, Parley, Rodd & Gunn, and the New York Red Bulls Major League soccer team.
“We’ve had a beachhead operation in New York for the past 18 months, but now we have a dedicated core team there so we can say yes to the new opportunities that are opening up for us,” says Kirkbeck.
Back on home soil, Augusto NZ has just relocated to a larger space in Auckland’s City Works Depot, where they welcome Aimee McCammon as Managing Director.
Aimee is formerly Managing Partner at Assignment Group, GM at Peter Jackson’s Park Road Post Production, and spent five years with Saatchi & Saatchi in Auckland, Wellington and New York.
