Independent media agency Match Media has appointed three new directors.

Richard Chataway joins the company as strategy director. Previously director, behaviour change strategy at UM, Richard has extensive public and private sector experience, with a track record of using communications to deliver successful behaviour change outcomes. Prior to UM he spent 2 years with the Central Office of Communication in Communications Planning and before that was Media Director at PHD.

“It’s great to be working with Match Media, a team who are enthusiastically embracing the latest thinking in consumer behaviour change and I am really looking forward to using my experience in this area,” said Chataway.

Rachida Murray is Match Media’s new search director and joins from Ikon Communications where she spent the last 2 years as Search Account Director. Before that she was with OMD as Search Account Manager, and previously worked in the UK as Search Account Manager with Arena.  A self-confessed search and digital addict, Murray is looking to push the boundaries and try new things. “I chose Match because I see this as a huge opportunity to develop and scale the current Biddable Media offering, as well as new product development across a wide range of clients,” said Murray.

Tim Newman joins Match as social director. He’s a highly qualified social media specialist and digital marketer with proven agency and client side experience. Newman worked with Telstra New Zealand as the head of digital marketing and social media. He established and promoted social media best practice at all levels of TelstraClear and worked with channel marketers, publicity and other departments to implement strategies. He was a director of SeeDomains and Social Media Director with PHDiq – a division of PHD network.

“Social Media is a serious component of any brand and their marketing efforts and I am looking forward to bringing an enthusiastic strategic approach to this growing area,” said Newman.

James Simmons, director/partner at Match Media is delighted to welcome the new team. “We are constantly on the lookout for top talent and these three definitely fit that bill.  They are incredibly talented and experienced practitioners, all with deep areas of expertise and we are excited about what they can bring to our clients.  These hires have come off the back of both strong new business but also extending our remit and services across current clients,” said Simmons.
