Jackson and Neville’s roles are effective immediately, while Mudge and Townsend will join Ten in December 2018.
Ten’s chief sales officer, Rod Prosser, said: “We are building something exciting here at Ten. With our brilliant entertainment programming line-up over the coming months, we have a great story to tell and more commercial opportunities than ever.
“Damon, Ange, Cam and Paul are experienced, well-respected leaders in their respective markets. They are also passionate about Ten, our multi-platform offering and what we can achieve by bringing the advertising sales team back in-house.
“Each of them are great ambassadors for Ten, having worked closely with the company for many years. I’m thrilled to have them part of the sales leadership team to take Ten’s commercial strategy into the future.”
These appointments follow Ten’s recent sales leadership announcements of Michael Stanford as national creative director of its commercial production division, Ten Imagine; Tamar Hovagimian as head of its commercial partnership division, Ten Effect; and Gareth Tomlin as GM of data, insights and analytics.
