The shake-up at Ten following sales boss Barry O’Brien’s departure last month is continuing, with O’Brien’s replacement bringing in a former colleague to lead client services.
Louise Barrett (pictured), who joined Ten last year and has now stepped up to replace O’Brien, has recruited Kelly Healy, current Queensland director of sales at Bauer Media , into a newly-created role as head of client service.
Barrett and Healy previously worked together at ACP Magazines (which was sold to Bauer Media last year). Healy will join Ten in October.
Barrett said: “Kelly is a great leader and extremely well regarded in the media and advertising industries. We are very pleased she is joining Ten in this important new role.
“Inspirational and collaborative, Kelly always thinks outside the square in terms of how she can deliver clients the best in terms of amplification around their marketing strategies. She is going to make a big difference to the way Network Ten works with clients across its range of media assets.”
Healy said: “Ten is determined to create the best multi-platform sales team in the country and I’m very much looking forward to being part of that.”
