One of Australia’s biggest media agencies MediaCom has announced a restructure, with former Starcom MediaVest executive Nicole Turley to head its national investment team, Mumbrella can reveal.
The move by the GroupM agency follows the recent departure of Paul Brooks who moved to rival Carat last month and sees MediaCom boss Mark Pejic significantly restructure his teams.
Under the changes Turley will report to Pejic and be supported by the internal promotion of three separate investment specialists with Jane Henderson and Ashley Earnshaw in Sydney and Brett Elliott as Melbourne head of investment.
“We are sad to see Brooksy move on but at the same time delighted with the opportunity it presents in creating broader and deeper roles for our great existing talent such as Brett, Jane and Ashley,” said Pejic.
“This along with the injection of new talent through Nicole means we couldn’t be happier with how it has worked out,” he said.
Turley, who left Starcom in December and had been rumoured to be moving to a role with Havas Media, said she was excited about the move.
“I am really looking forward to working with such a great national team at MediaCom, building on an extremely strong trading and investment product – the future at MediaCom is really exciting.”
Paul Brooks, who still active in the transition said: “I am delighted for Brett, Jane and Ashley. Their promotions are well deserved and they will work well alongside Bryan Magee to define MediaCom’s investment offering. I wish Nicole and the team all the best”.
