The new partnership sees Pacific with management of all its branded websites, with Yahoo7 exclusively providing native in-stream advertising on all Pacific digital products.
Peter Zavecz, CEO, Pacific Magazines, commented: “We have come together to evolve our partnership into one that better reflects the changing media landscape, our audiences’ and clients’ expectations and the inherent complementary strengths of Pacific and Yahoo7.
“Our clients will benefit from a single solution across all platforms, whilst the consumer experience will be seamless across publishing, social, video and online. This will drive our deep expertise in content, brands and categories whilst completing our multi-platform offering and total audience footprint.”

We look forward to working with key content partners across the globe, to shape our diverse, engaging and personalised Lifestyle and Entertainment proposition.”

Pac Mags’ Zavecz added: “We look forward to further enhancing the competitive advantage of our portfolio of leading media brands whilst continuing to drive further innovation in a highly dynamic market.”
