MEDIAWORKS APPOINTS RICHARD FENNER AS BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR
MediaWorks TV has appointed Richard Fenner to the newly created role of Business Development Director. The role sees him working closely with the Sales team to identify new clients, projects and opportunities for the network. Richard is well known throughout the advertising industry as one of New Zealand’s most experienced agency executives, and co-founder and former Managing Director of Spark PHD, the 2010 CAANZ Agency of the Year.
MediaWorks Director of Sales, Linda Farrelly, says he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the company. “Richard was a fantastic client, is highly regarded in the industry and will bring new skills and different perspective to our business,” she says. “The MediaWorks business model has changed, and it is important that we continue to expand our expertise in order to continue to move our business forward. Richard ticks all the boxes. I am thrilled that he is joining the team.”
The announcement follows last week’s 2012 programme launch which saw MediaWorks present clients, agencies and media with the first look at TV3 and FOUR’s impressive new season line ups. The launch was also a chance to reflect on many of the innovative, custom made solutions the company has created for its clients over the past 12 months, including the first fruits of the company’s Integration team, a specialist sales division headed by Melanie Reece.
“I’ve surprised myself how excited I am about this opportunity,” Richard says. “Linda and her team are great and I hope I can contribute as much as they expect. Love the challenge!”
