People first, Business Second

We’re proudly independent and that has its benefits.

A happy team means better work. We know it, which is why we put our people first. We’re not above boasting about our high levels of staff retention. We attribute it to a few things, like our high staff to billing ratio which is way above the industry average. Also our preference for a flatter structure. In action this means implementing a Shadow Board, encouraging accessibility and inclusion among team members, no matter the title or experience.

It’s official, we’re the happiest media agency in Aus* and one of the best places to work**

  • AdamHead of Performance and Ecommerce

    A self-confessed coffee snob who’s been ‘Melbournised’ by ordering a ‘Magic’, it’s fitting Adam is our Head of Performance & eCommerce: data never sleeps! This dad of two’s experience spans some of Australia’s most loved brands such as The Body Shop, KIA, ANZ & Harvey Norman. When he isn’t building ecommerce businesses, he’s watching Danny Riccardo F1 re-runs or supporting his beloved Sydney Swans.

  • AdrianManaging Partner

    Managing Partner Adrian Roeling is so cool he gets called ‘AR’ for short. An entrepreneur who started is own agency in uni & has since managed global digital marketing programs & national media agencies, AR now provides strategic advice to Hatchlings & clients. This happy husband also tries to provide strategic advice to the junior soccer team he coaches as well as his 2 boys.

  • AdrianaSenior Media Manager

    Not many Hatchlings can brag about singing on a real live stage (without gate-crashing), but Adri can. Ex-backup dancer for The Veronicas, Adri now invests her creativity into her role as Senior Media Manager. When she’s not feeding top-notch campaign solutions to clients, she’s living by her ‘food is life’ mantra & feeding herself.

    Adriana SantoroSenior Media Manager
  • Amanda McGinnOffice Manager

    Herding Hatchlings is no mean feat, yet Office Manager Amanda somehow does it with aplomb & a grin. Which is nice, given ‘grin’ kinda rhymes with ‘McGinn’. Amanda lived the rock star life for 35 years, owning a media entertainment company with her hubby. Know the saying “what happens on tour stays on tour”? Our lips are sealed…

    Amanda McGinnOffice Manager
  • AnaisPerformance Manager

    Performance Manager, Anais prides herself on being a data nerd, thriving on analytics to help her make decisions. She learnt data-nerdery at university, achieving a masters in commerce and marketing. We’re not sure what data she used to decide to take up Muay Thai though! On the safer side of things, Anais loves arts and crafts and has taken her love to volunteering for the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival. Her love of the weird and the wonderful may have come from her early years spent growing up outside the celebrated ‘Moulin Rouge’ in Paris. We’re hoping for her sake someone from ‘Moulin Rouge’ taught her how to do high kicks!!

    Anais Cramesnil De LaleuPerformance Manager
  • AndrewHead of Product

    It’s no coincidence ‘Pascoe’ & ‘passion’ both begin with ‘pas’: Pascoe IS passion. Which is good for Hatched; even better for our clients. By day this passionate Head of Product is blowing clients’ minds with the micro & the macro & analytics & statistics: by night, this husband is raising 2 wonderful kids & growing his vinyl record collection.

    Andrew PascoeHead of Product
  • AngusPerformance Manager

    Have you heard the saying “don’t trust people with two first names”? Well, we don’t believe in sayings like that, but what we do believe in is our new Performance Manager, Angus Craig. Angus comes to hatched with a Bachelor of Media and Communications and five years in the biz under his belt. He’s tasked with crafting the best digital campaigns across search, social and can also create content with the best of ‘em. Angus is a bit of an all-rounder outside of Hatched. He plays footy and cricket, loves hiking and despite being a red head, he’s happy to hang out at the beach. He’s also appeared on TV, alongside Margot Robbie no less. We’re thinking of adding another first name for Angus and that’s Ken.

    Angus CraigPerformance Manager
  • AnhMedia Executive

    Digital Media Manager Anh sports a mixed bag of media experience, including government, retail, technology & mining. Anh absolutely loves mixed bags, usually of the lollies kind, confessing her sweet tooth can happily lead her straight to dessert & skip the main meal! She also loves her puppy, who we can't wait to have hang out in the Hatched headquarters.

    Anh DoanMedia Executive
  • AshlieGroup Business Director

    Ash oozes oodles of experience in the media game & thrives on challenging the status quo. She also thrives on crime docos which is somewhat in contrast to her passion for cooking & all things creative. (Or is it?) A bright & bubbly Group Business Director, Ash attributes her success to her 2IC: her pint-sized toy poodle Pippa.

    Ashlie McIntoshGroup Business Director
  • AxelPerformance Manager

    Axel has a bit of a thing for advertising! He is a digital marketing specialist who studied advertising and has since worked in both agencies and client side. He doesn’t want to be pigeonholed by the old trope that digital peeps aren’t creative, he’s an ideas man! And he can’t stay still, which is good for ideas. Axel is a bit of a sports nut too, playing soccer since he was a little tacker and a host of other sports with his mates. When he’s not on the field, he’s in the art gallery immersing himself in the weird and wonderful. Welcome Axel, we reckon weird is wonderful.

    Axel TaussigPerformance Manager
  • BelindaStrategy Manager

    Belinda is such a cool cucumber she’s simply called ‘B’. It’s no coincidence ‘bright’, ‘brainy’ and ‘bloody unreal’ also start with B, because B is all of these things. A Planning Manager who eats data for ‘breakfast’, B is a ‘beast’ when it comes to data-driven media planning & strategy. Hatched is ‘blessed’ to have her!

    Belinda PorterStrategy Manager
  • BellaDigital Solutions Manager

    Digital Solutions Manager Bella Masters is aptly-named: she’s a master in her craft & she puts on quite the performance after demolishing a bottle of wine that was named after her. Social expert by day & social butterfly by night, Bella thrives when trying new foods while poring over killer client campaigns.

  • BerlianStrategy Director

    Berlian has spent half of her time in advertising working in Washington D.C and the other half in Sydney. Now she’s back on Aussie soil she’s planted herself at Hatched. Berlian has worked on some outstanding campaigns for Medecins Sans Frontieres McDonalds and their Olympic Games Partnership as well as GIO and Planned Parenthood Federation of America. She loves to use digital media in ways that are pioneering and unique. In her campaign for GIO called Fuel the Fire, she used social media to turn the taunts of Queenslanders into a rallying cry for NSW. Did we mention she’ll be staying in Sydney?? Berlian is the first to suggest Karaoke to end a night out, and if the night ends there, she’ll happily cook her stage-shy friends something delicious and force them to watch her favourite movie, Sister Act 2, instead.

  • CaitlynMedia Coordinator

    There’s nothing fishy about Media Coordinator Caitlyn, except she’s petrified of fish – yet, loves the beach. (We’re as puzzled as you…) Regardless, we’re rapt this seafood-snob has chosen Hatched for her first media role! When not dodging the plenty of fish in the sea, Caitlyn is nose-deep in a book & wants to publish her own one day. (Probably not about fish.)

    Caitlyn BaystonMedia Coordinator
  • CarriePerformance Executive

    Carrie started studying science but decided she no longer wanted to be a radiologist & got a marketing degree instead. Which is good for Hatched. Not so good for all those broken bones out there. This Performance Executive also wanted to be a patisserie chef once, but cooks up delicious digital campaigns for Hatched clients instead.

    Carrie HoPerformance Executive
  • CatherineGeneral Manager, Sydney

    Sydney GM Cat has a bunch of cool client experience under her hat, like Kia, Nestle & the NSW Government. Her best job ever (excluding this one) was working at the London 2012 Olympics where she escorted corporates to events. When Cat isn’t camping or climbing Kilimanjaro, Annapurna Base Camp or Kosciusko, she’s eating. Which demonstrates balance, in our book.

    Catherine EdghillGeneral Manager, Sydney
  • ClarePerformance Director

    Self-confessed coffee addict Clare loves everything from yoga & Pilates to bouldering & hiking. Add some data & research to this Senior Performance Directors list of loves & you have quite the wild card. Oh – did we mention this award-winning media mogul is a champion Uno player? No? Well. Draw four.

    Clare FarrugiaPerformance Director
  • ClareSenior Media Manager

    Senior Media Manager Clare is one of those people who continues to surprise & delight the more you peel back her layers. Clare is a super-savvy media craftswoman with oodles of cool clients in her impressive portfolio. She’s also a potential super-savvy crab-catcher, having watched all 17 seasons of The Deadliest Catch.

    Clare Milligan-MorvadSenior Media Manager
  • CraigFinance Director

    Despite his name, Finance Director Craig is no fuss at all. Craig’s first office job was at AIS (Advertising Investment Services) because he thought AIS was the Australian Institute of Sport. When he’s not directing finances, Craig’s glued to the TV watching his beloved Tigers. He also watches the abundant highlight replays in the off-season. 

    Craig FussellFinance Director
  • DanniHead of Strategy, Sydney

    Spending 5 minutes with our Head of Strategy Danni is like taking a 5-week holiday in Tinseltown. Which makes sense, given she’s a piano-playing-singer with a Eurovision addiction. This award-winning comms queen possesses oodles of experience across brands like Tassal & the Pyjama Foundation, and simply loves people. We simply love you too, Danni.

    Danni DimitriHead of Strategy, Sydney
  • Denise Head of Digital

    While Denise is the Head of Digital, her quick Irish wit & want for whiskey bucks the geek trend that’s so commonly associated with data lovers. With programmatic experience coming out of her experience, when not obsessing over her craft Denise is obsessing over “a proper potato”. And running from creepy-crawlies. To be sure to be sure.

  • DianaDirector

    Diana proclaims she’s a fashion failure, embracing only the ‘media’ part of her Fashion & Media degree. But a fashion failure she’s not: this to-die-for Director makes underwear & swimwear for physically disabled women in her spare time. Conversely, a Shark Tank failure she is, having participated in the German show TWICE, but never making it to the telly…

    Diana WongDirector
  • Emily CapsisSenior Trading Manager

    Emily’s obsession with Italian food could be attributed to her previous life when she worked with Leggo’s & watched competitors gorge themselves in a ‘Best Bolognaise’ competition. She also worked with Bunnings but prefers fancy fettuccine over a snag. When not sprinkling her Senior Trading Manager magic on Hatched clients, she’s sprinkling mum magic over her son, Caden.

    Emily CapsisSenior Trading Manager
  • EmilySenior Media Executive

    We’re so glad Senior Media Executive Emily Stewart chose media over web design because we love having her brain here at Hatched! Armed with a Bachelor of Design in Digital Media, Stewie helps make it all happen. What she didn’t make happen is owning a dog – she owns a rabbit who THINKS it’s a dog – so, #efficiencygains.

    Emily StewartSenior Media Executive
  • GeorgieBusiness Director

    GBS has been with Hatched for a long time. Long enough that some people don’t know her first name is actually Georgie. She’s got an Arts degree in Psychology and a Masters of Advertising. GBS’s career began at REA and as an expert in all things property (and psychology…and advertising), she helps Hatched’s property clients sell new houses and developments. In her time at Hatched, she’s landed some big accounts like Satterley and Mirvac. And because she likes to get things done, she had two daughters in two years!

  • JaydenDigital Solutions Lead

    While it’s hard for us to wrap our mouths around Jayden’s surname, this Digital Solutions Lead has no problem wrapping his brain around campaign strategy & planning. When he’s not wowing clients, Jayden loves escaping to the country for some R&R. But not to smell the fresh air: Jayden can’t smell. (This is not a joke.)

In that time she has worked on a diverse range of clients. Some, like Seasol, specialize in lawn care while others, like Sexyland, specialize in self-care.

    Digital Analyst Julie is all about the cheese – whether it’s a romance novel or the kind you pair with wine. Which she’s also all about. Her cheese addiction could’ve been conceived when she worked across Maccas, but probably not when she worked across BUPA, NAB & Mazda. A hot-sauce addict, Julie’s purse proudly houses a bottle of Tabasco.

    Performance Manager Lauren’s surname is similar to the word ‘campaign’, which is fitting given she lives & breathes killer campaign management & implementation. It also means ‘countryside’ in Italian, which has nothing to do with Hatched, but is quite lovely. What isn’t lovely is Lauren was once attacked by a bird & now fears them. Non buono.

  • MadeleineAssociate Director

    When it comes to impeccable client service, there aren’t many who are as well-equipped as Maddy Chan. Maddy is rarely without a smile on her face and has a well of energy to achieve the unachievable. Maddy has been servicing customers for most of her life, successfully managing numerous retail stores with her bubbly personality and problem-solving attitude: the perfect combo for her role as Associate Director at Hatched! This self-confessed non-nerdy nerd is an Excel addict who makes spreadsheets for fun: two words that ordinarily don’t go together. Her helpful attitude and approachable demeanour makes her an admired leader and trusted teacher around the Hatched office; while her magical media mind makes her absolutely adored by her clients. When she’s not working – or making spreadsheets – Maddy is cuddling her cat Ari and planning her next travelling expedition: which is both exhilarating and terrifying for her, given she is petrified of planes.

But that’s not all – I’m a culinary Jedi, whipping up dishes faster than the Millennium Falcon and binge- watching Marvel/Star Wars sagas. And if I’m not in the kitchen or glued to the screen, catch me grooving at live gigs or reminiscing about the time I teamed up with pals to bring the NBA action to your ears via a podcast (RIP Spotify availability)

    Paul has about as much experience in media as you can have, working on some of Australia and the UK’s biggest brands. None bigger than the British Army, mind you!. In his most memorable army campaign, Paul and his team documented soldiers climbing Mt Everest, getting the film overnight and making into ads to air the next day. Crazy, awe-inspiring stuff. Paul does other crazy, awe-inspiring stuff every day at Hatched and at home. He cooks, hikes, plays golf and guitar and drums…unfortunately not at the same time. But his most crazy, awe-inspiring feat happened in 2019 where he made it to Mt Everest’s Base Camp in eight days, this time without the help of the army.

    Roshin’s in the house! And that’s great because Roshin’s music genre of choice is pretty clearly rock. She’s even named her dogs Zeppelin and Floyd. That’s really going to mix things up around here with the Hatched preference for yacht rock. But Roshin’s not here for her tunes only, she’s here to bolster the Sydney performance team with her smarts in information systems and digital marketing not to mention her time on the client side. Roshin loves delving into the intricacies of brands, shaping their digital presence, uncovering nuance, and getting results to keep the journey interesting.
