Head of Digital
Nick Jones thought Pace was so nice, he’s worked here twice! Nick first started to contribute to the Pace team at the age of 10 by clearing out the biscuit tin and has been working hard ever since to keep it to an optimum level (so he can empty it again). He has a Commerce Degree with a major in Management and Business Analytics and while he originally started working as a dev, he has since migrated to the client facing side. Nick is stellar at translating the business requirements and client speak into technical jargon for the team internally to get the best solution. There isn’t a number of projects Nick cannot manage at once, and he does it all with a calm and cool demeanor.
Senior Account Manager
Sophia originally interned at Pace in 2012 while studying Public Relations at Deakin University, and we wouldn’t let her go. She joined the team full-time after completing her degree in 2013, focussing primarily on Pace’s work for tourism, travel, national retail brands and major events. As primary contact and account executive, it will be Sophia’s job to ensure all day-to-day tasks are completed when it should be and to schedule activities to happen in a timely manner. She has been a catalyst in developing the Pace approach to e-communication and in providing innovative and cost-effective creative solutions for new media.
