South Melbourne emerging as a hub for Victoria’s digital media sector

Komosion has expanded its Victorian operations and moved into a new, branded building in South Melbourne on 33 Tope Street.

The offices were opened today by the Member for Albert Park, Mr Martin Foley, MP, who said the company’s expansion was evidence of Victoria’s emerging status as a hub for the digital media industry in Australia.

Komosion’s Managing Director John O’Neill said the company’s major shareholders included Mr Shane Higgs, a former owner and publisher of the Melbourne Times newspaper group, whose very involvement illustrated the profound shift in media and communications being wrought by the internet.

“We decided to expand our operations in Melbourne because of the tremendous environment fostered for companies like ours in Victoria, including through programs and procurement undertaken by the Victorian Government’s Department of Innovation, Industry and Regional Development,” Mr O’Neill said.
