Founder & Principal, Hyland
Virginia Hyland launched her own start up independent agency 12 years ago. As a one man band she single handedly pitched to clients, knocked out the competition and created a unique agency that has grown to 35 people today.
Her passion to launch HYLAND was based on the premise to help people understand how to inspire and communicate effectively with audiences. Creating successful campaigns and outcomes for clients has meant that the business has changed over time and now develops content for social campaigns and advertising campaigns. HYLAND is now the largest Independent female owned Media Agency in Australia today.
HYLAND works with an enormous breadth of clientele from beauty, fashion, accounting, entertainment, FMCG, Pharmaceutical, Home and Lifestyle industries. Some of the clients that work with HYLAND include Calvin Klein, Natuzzi, RIMMEL, OPI, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Sally Hansen, Lilydale, Steggles, Olympus and Silversea Cruises.
Her goal today is to build a team of entrepreneurial thinkers who help clients harness multiplatform campaigns and relevant content that works in individual channels.
She has won numerous awards such as NSW Finalist Telstra Business Women of the Year, Top 30 Female Powerlist in Media, Media Agency of the Year Finalist and Employer of the Year Finalist.
