She makes a powerful addition to the growing team.
“We’ve been looking for the right person to lead our Sydney presence for some months and welcome Nicki to the team with excitement. Our team’s expansion into Sydney really needed the right values and personality behind it. We pride ourselves on making media for over 60s young, fun and engaging. Nicki is the perfect fit,” said Rebecca Wilson, founder and CEO of Starts at 60.
Having recently deployed Lotame, they launch their “direct digital audiences”, premium data driven advertising opportunities in coming weeks amid significant demand. “This will enable premium advertisers and sponsors to access a variety of targetable cohorts over 60, unavailable anywhere else in such quality and volumes in the media industry.”
