Jellysmack makes new hires as Aus & NZ growth continues

Jellysmack ANZ country manager Ezechiel Ritchie has made three further appointments to the local team.

The appointments include Swarnaa Rajalingam and Gaia Chamchuen joining the creator partnership team, while Tali Sawicz joins the creator success team.

The creator partnership team is tasked with “identifying and signing the most influential video content creators and media companies across Australia and New Zealand”, and the success team is charged with helping those signed developing across each social media platform.


On the appointments, Ritchie said: “In Swarnaa, Gaia and Tali we have brought together a unique set of skills, not only working in support of the creator economy but as passionate leaders from within it. The trio brings valuable experience and contacts to our new Australian and New Zealand operations as we look to rapidly grow the market here. We will soon announce more content creator signings as local creators look to realise their global and multi-platform appeal.”
