Following a successful 2014 with growth from new and existing clients and continued growth in 2015 Match Media has announced today the appointment of two senior client led positions who will add further energy to the strong foundation of Match.
Both Matt Turl and Louise Willmott will be joining in the newly created positions of Group Client Partner. On the new appointments, James Simmons, COO of Match Media said, “As we continue to expand, our focus is 100% on delivering for our existing clients and helping them grow. For that we need to continue to evolve our structure and maintain everything that is good about Match. Matt and Louise have a huge amount of experience and are the type of people we look for at Match. We are thrilled to have them on board.”
Matt has over 20 years’ experience in media, having started his career at Merchant & Partners. He joins Match from ZenithOptimedia where he has spent the majority of his career in both Asia and Australia. He began as Business Director for Zenith before taking on the COO role in Malaysia. Following Malaysia, he was appointed Regional Client Services Director, based in Hong Kong, before moving back to Australia as Group Business Director for the company.
“Having admired Match’s rapid growth, diverse client base and evident ambition, I’m delighted to be joining a leadership team that will continue to deliver outstanding results for clients and further growth for the agency,” Matt said.
Louise joined Match Media late last year. She was previously Account Director with MediaCom in London and Sydney, and has a strong track record across automotive, luxury retail, FMCG, travel and finance sectors. Prior to MediaCom, where she spent over seven years, Louise was with the Starcom Mediavest Group in the UK.
“It’s great to be a part of Match’s growth strategy and playing an integral role in delivering the future vision for the agency,” Louise said.
