Shout Media has added two key members to its growing sales team. Jay Drew has joins as Senior Account Manager from Mediacom. While Olivia Innes joins the team from TVNZ and will assist Sales Director Jen Sergel.
Drew had a short intern role at Shout five years ago before going on to gain valuable agency experience elsewhere. In a statement Shout notes that he is well placed to develop and implement media company’s sales strategy.
While recruiting for Drew, another outstanding candidate, Innes made it clear to Sergel they a new position had to be created for her.
“Olivia’s skill set spans all aspects of sales and marketing, and we are really excited she has joined the team,” says Sergel.
This month (COVID permitting) Shout will also launch two new innovative digital networks, Study in Universities and NoticeBoard in Secondary Schools. Shout purchased the existing Study network from oOh!media in July and NoticeBoards is a collaboration with Wellington based Obvious Brand Partners.
Paul Kenny is excited about the new channels, saying: “Study and NoticeBoard fit Shout’s portfolio perfectly, sitting alongside and complementing our existing youth focused platforms. They also expand our digital footprint, which is a strong part of our future focus.”
Study in Universities launches in September with 16 tertiary campuses nationwide and NoticeBoard in 20 high schools.
