Thomas joined Mamamia in August last year after working with Ikon Communications for the eight years prior.

Kylie Rogers, managing director of Mamamia, told Mumbrella the women’s network was currently recruiting for Thomas’ replacement.

“I’m thrilled for Georgia, it’s a great opportunity for her, and she’ll add some real value over at The Australian. Mamamia is recruiting now for her replacement,” she said.

The Australian has also appointed Bauer Media’s head of direct sales Lisa Wells as deputy general manager of sales.

Wells joins News Corp after two and a half years at Bauer Media.

“Their passion and experience in the industry make them an excellent addition to our team as we continue to implement out sales strategy for Australia’s largest premium national and business multi-platform portfolio.”

Both Wells and Thomas will report into Cottier. Wells starts on July 18, while Thomas will start in mid-September.
