With more than 20 years’ experience in Australia and the United States, Reid brings strengths in areas including strategic media and content partnerships, digital and print publishing, radio and market research. She was most recently a group business manager at Nine Network and has also held senior roles at Australian Community Media and Nielsen.

Involved Media has appointed Sophie Carkeek as group account director, based in Melbourne. Carkeek has held strategy, planning and client service roles at MediaCom Australia, Cole Media, Wavemaker and Dentsu X, working across the retail, government and fast-moving consumer goods sectors.

Cristina Spizzica has also joined Involved Media’s Melbourne agency as digital strategist, reporting to head of strategy and planning, Dan Hojnik. Previously digital investment manager at MediaCom Australia, Spizzica will manage the strategic development of integrated digital-led campaigns for both existing and new clients.

Sarah Keith said: “I’m delighted to welcome Susan, Sophie and Cristina to the Involved Media team. All three bring unique and valuable experience and skills to our business and our clients, and their appointments are further evidence of our ongoing investment in new talent and new offerings.

“The fact Sophie and Cristina are based in Melbourne recognises our valued and growing client base in Victoria.”
