Media Carsales has announced the appointment of Sam Zadgan, general manager of commercial partnerships as the newest member of its media leadership Team.

Zadgan will manage strategic commercial partnership opportunities and innovation across Carsales’ portfolio. He is also tasked with building upon existing supporting solutions to key industry challenges and enhancing the Carsales media and service offering.

With 20+ years of media industry experience, Zadgan worked at Publicis Media Australia as a general manager. He also held commercial roles at Dentsu Aegis Network, BBC Studios and Verizon Media.

Carsales, commercial director media (sales & customer solutions), Vanya Mariani, said: “Sam Zadgan is joining our Media Leadership Team and will be a key contributor in the transformation of our media business.

“As we start to shine a light on all the unique offerings available under the Carsales umbrella, Sam will lead our partnership conversation to ensure our core customers can leverage more than our audience size and attention.”

Newly appointed, Zadgan said: “Carsales is a data and audience-rich business with a history of innovations in technology.

“Even with the strength of the company, its products and teams have demonstrated to date, it retains almost untapped potential as a digital disrupter.

“I look forward to building our partnerships and reinforcing and expanding the long-term relationships across the media ecosystem.

“My previous interactions as well as the reputation of Carsales as a great business with great people, was a strong attraction for me. From day one, I have experienced an entrepreneurial and natural, down to earth atmosphere, throughout the business which is energising to be a part of.

“I’m thrilled to be working with the Carsales media leadership team to innovate commercial opportunities and tackle the next phase of the Carsales media business.”
