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.”
