Pacific Magazines today announced changes to its sales representation in South Australia and Western Australia.
In South Australia, Pacific Magazines has appointed industry servant, Russell Media, aligning its Adelaide representation with Seven Network regional stations. Peter ‘Spike’ Russell will lead Pacific’s SA sales strategy and implementation, with the appointment effective immediately.
Pacific Magazines regional advertising director Simone Dalla Riva said, “Russell Media’s appointment in South Australia is testament to their incredible relationships, creativity and ability to drive cross-media sales solutions.”
Russell added, “Russell Media is delighted to represent Pacific Magazines and their burgeoning content proposition. It will add considerable scope to the conversations we presently undertake as we continue to drive sales for some of the country’s best brands.”
Nicky Simpson has also been appointed as WA advertising sales manager.
Dalla Riva said, “Simply put, Nicky Simpson is a top operator and boasts a wonderful industry reputation. Her enthusiasm and sales mindset come with proven client results and will help us drive continued growth in WA.”
“It is a privilege to join the innovative, successful team at Pacific Magazines – and I look forward to delivering against the objectives of our agency and client partners,” Simpson said of her appointment.
Previously Simpson has held sales roles at ACP Magazines (now Bauer Media) and at Indigo Media (Real Weddings).
The appointment of Nicky Simpson and Russell Media follows the recent passing of Peter Murphy, who represented Pacific Magazines in South Australia and Western Australia for ten years. Peter Murphy was awarded Magazines Sales Person of the Year, SA, at last night’s Media i Awards, held in Sydney.
