Pacific Magazines today announced changes to its commercial team, designed to position the business at the forefront of sales strategy and client delivery.

Prue Cox, Commercial Director, Pacific, commented: “These significant changes to our commercial team have been designed from the outside in. Simply put, we’ve realigned our business and operational model to best connect our scale audiences with our clients’ brands across the many platforms we operate, driving innovation and results in an ever-changing media landscape.

“Our structures and systems have evolved to become specifically client-centric in design with a network, multi-platform approach to sales, strategic solutions and in-depth consumer insights, leading campaign management, data and ROI metrics. The result is sophistication and ease of doing business with Pacific and a stronger alignment with our partners at Seven West Media.”
