QMS Media has appointed former JC Decaux national sales director (independent agencies) David Pullinger to the newly created role of general manager, independent agencies and direct sales.
The appointment comes in a bid to further drive growth in what QMS describes as the “significant independent agency and direct sales market”.
With more than 20 years’ experience leading media sales teams, Pullinger has spent close to the last decade at APN Outdoor, where he drove revenue growth for the business across a range of sales management roles, before moving to JC Decaux post the APN Outdoor acquisition.
QMS Media chief executive John O’Neill said the appointment of Pullinger was “fundamental”, off the back of recent contract acquisitions, including the City of Sydney street furniture concession and the launch of 7-Eleven’s small format digital network, IMPULSE.
“This newly created role is critical to delivering our strategic vision as we prepare to lead yet another transformational year for the sector,” O’Neill said in a statement. “David brings a wealth of senior sales leadership experience, market leading customer service and product knowledge.
“As our business continues to evolve and grow, David’s experience in managing high performing sales teams combined with his reputation and market understanding, will see him build on our solid foundations of quality and excellence for our clients across the fast-growing independent agency and direct sales market.”
Pullinger said: “I’ve watched QMS grow into a true market leader and have admired their customer first approach which has helped shape and progress the OOH industry.
“I am thrilled to join the team at a crucial time where the business is set to drive further growth into the fast growing direct and independent agency groups; an opportunity I simply couldn’t refuse.”
