oOh!media’s Queensland market position is set to be bolstered with the appointment of former ARN Sales Director Jamie Wood as the new leader of its Queensland sales team.
An experienced and respected industry figure, Wood will enhance the capabilities of the local sales team while delivering strategic leadership and building customer relationships across the portfolio.
He joins after several successful years at ARN, where he played an integral part in the network’s growth.
oOh! Chief Sales Officer Tim Murphy said the addition of Jamie to the team could not have come at a better time.
“We’re encouraged by the speedy rebound of audiences in some areas, having noticed a definite pick-up in market activity over the last few weeks,” Mr Murphy said.
“Bringing Jamie in at this juncture will enable us to capitalise on this upward momentum and engage with agencies and advertisers in really purposeful ways over the coming months.”
Mr Wood said that he was eager to get started with his new company.
“I’m thrilled to lead the Queensland sales team and drive our commercial approach forward at pace,” he said.
“There’s no doubt the past few months have been challenging for everyone, but I’m excited to harness oOh!’s unrivalled offering to continue to build the business and deliver market-leading results for our clients and agency partners.
“We will be focused on increasing our market presence and driving operational excellence across all aspects of our sales operations in order to realise the full value of oOh! in the Queensland market.”
He will start in his new role on 24 August.
