Man of Many appoints Simon Fitzgerald as agency sales head

One of Australia’s men’s lifestyle publications, Man of Many –, has continued its expansion in digital publishing with the appointment of former Picnic sales director, Simon Fitzgerald as agency sales lead.

With eight years of experience working in advertising and sales, Fitzgerald brings a unique skill set – having worked at Mediacom, Carsales, and most recently at the display advertising agency, Picnic in the UK. Fitzgerald is no stranger to collaborating with premium brands, having worked with the likes of Apple, American Express, GoPro and The Volkswagen Group.

“I had a great experience in the UK, being the first sales hire at Picnic, and seeing that business grow from the ground up. But I’m glad to be home in Sydney after almost four years away, and I couldn’t be more excited to be joining the Man of Many team. The brand is on an exciting trajectory, and I’m looking forward to building exciting partnerships with their premium clients,” Fitzgerald said.

Since launching in 2012, Man of Many has cemented a list of clients including, Apple, JBL, IWC, TAG Heuer, Samsung, Moncler and American Express.

Co-founder of Man of Many, Scott Purcell, said: “We’re extremely excited to have Simon join our team. His experience in display advertising and his passion for delivering for clients makes him a valuable asset to not only the future growth of Man of Many but for the success of the brands and agencies we partner with.”

Last year, Man of Many picked up four awards at the 2021 Mumbrella Publish Awards including Brand of the Year, while Publishing Company of the Year has been won by DMARGE in the small category and Pedestrian Group in the large category.
