Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) has announced three management promotions for its Brisbane office.
Carla Mathisen, Bec Cooper and Aleesha Webster-Smith have all been promoted to leadership roles within SCA’s Brisbane sales team, which is led by Will Allen.
Mathisen has been appointed group sales manager (agency). She has been with SCA for three years as an account manager, having previously worked in sales and advertising with Wotif and in sponsorships with The Ekka.
Mathisen was also a finalist for this year’s B&T Women in Media Awards.
Cooper has been promoted from digital sales manager to the role of group sales manager (agency).
She has been with SCA for almost five years after previously working as a sales executive with Seven and with Brisbane media agencies Mitchell’s (now Carat) and Media Circus.
Webster-Smith (main photo), who has been growing SCA’s local clients’ businesses over the last 10 years, has been promoted to group sales manager (local).
Allen said the promotions were reflective of a new generation of leaders within SCA, as well as the company’s commitment to staff progression and employee pathway development.
“As Australia’s biggest entertainment company with the ability to reach more than 95 per cent of the Australian population through radio, television and digital platforms, we believe strongly in the importance of mentoring and developing team members to ensure they have the skills they need, that they have the ability to build their own pathways within the company, and that they are ready for ever-present change within our industry,” he said.
“All three executives promoted are great examples of pathways leading to success, and examples of talented people reaping rewards.”
