Last week MediaWorks announced the appointment of three new Agency General Managers to its commercial team.
Anna Magasiva, Sarah Jones and Matt Field will join the company in the coming months as Agency GMs responsible for delivering radio, out of home and digital solutions for advertisers.
Commenting on the new appointments, MediaWorks Head of Agency Jaana Collins says that the three new hires bring great experience to the leadership roles.
“Anna, Sarah and Matt bring with them broad talent across strategy, content solutions, client service and sales leadership. I know both their individual skill sets, and understanding of the media landscape will add real value to our business and to our agency partners,” Collins says.
