Hot on the heels of their rebrand earlier this year, CALIBRE + CANDOR has announced three new appointments as the agency continues to grow and broaden their range of talent.
CALIBRE + CANDOR General Manager, Sheila Worsley, is thrilled with the new additions to the team particularly in a market where quality talent is at a premium.
“We’ve been patient to recruit the right people with the right mindset and vision for the future of the business. We knew that it was going to be tough in the current employment landscape, but it has been worth the wait.”
Abi Banks joins as a Client Service Director after a decade at various media publishers including NZME, MediaWorks, and most recently, Discovery.
“CALIBRE + CANDOR’s unique approach to media is what made joining the team an easy decision. After watching the business grow and develop from the other side, the opportunity to be a part of what CALIBRE + CANDOR are doing in the market is extremely exciting. I really look forward to using my experience supplier side to help deliver best-in-class solutions for our clients,” Banks says.
Nick Dykes, Head of Client Service at CALIBRE + CANDOR is looking forward to having Banks on board.
“Her knowledge and understanding of the industry will be an asset to our clients, particularly as we strive to deliver clients greater value and opportunity through strong media partner relationships.”
Also joining the growing team is Yusuf Vohra as Digital Lead, a former Google Premier Partner Awards nominee. Vohra has a strong background in digital with experience across a range of client categories including global heavyweight brands such as McDonalds, BMW and Lego.
“I am proud to be joining the specialist team at CALIBRE + CANDOR and focussed on enhancing CALIBRE + CANDOR’s biddable media offering further,” says Vohra.
Finally, Kavya Krishan has joined the team as a Paid Search Specialist, after her previous role at Harper Digital. She notes that it was the company’s mantra of ‘smart thinking, straight talking’ that drew her in.
“That approach just resonated with me and I knew that it was a place where I would belong,” says Krishan.
