Advertising delivery company, IMD, has appointed ex-2GB sales head Andy Gilroy as its national sales director ANZ to oversee the global company’s expanding operation in both Australia and New Zealand.
Gilroy brings nearly 20 years of multi-media sales management and strategy experience to IMD. His appointment follows Ashley Botten’s move to Singapore to take up the role of IMD global sales director.
Ashley Botten said of the changes, “IMD’s technology, IMD Cloud, has been very well received in Australia and we have experienced considerable growth.
“Our technology and customer service have helped our clients and partners save valuable time and money delivering material to broadcasters. Bringing Andy on to the team shows not only the successes we have achieved to date in this market but also just how real the potential to grow our market share is.”
“The amount of time the industry as a whole wastes on outdated processes is substantial” according to Gilroy.
“Today everyone is under pressure to find greater efficiencies in every aspect of their business. IMD allows creative, media and post-production agencies to save huge amounts of time and money during the delivery process.
“Our goal is to help agencies free up this time and ultimately increase productivity,” Gilroy says.
In addition to Gilroy, Alyce Ward joins IMD as an account manager. Ward was previously at Southern Cross Austereo and prior to that at APN News & Media where she was a media sales manager.
