Nova Entertainment announces Jess Roach as Sydney agency sales director

Nova Entertainment has appointed group sales manager Jess Roach to the position of Sydney agency sales director.

Roach replaces Rob Sloan who is leaving the business after 13 years across both the Sydney and Melbourne offices. It isn’t yet known what the next role for Sloan will be.

Roach is a ‘strong player’ said Nova

Nova’s Sydney commercial director and market lead, Luke Minto, said Roach is already a strong player in the sales team.

“Jess is already a stand out operator in the Sydney market and this appointment is natural step up for someone with such capability. She possesses an innate ability to lead and adapt solutions to an ever-changing media landscape.”

Roach has been in the media industry for nine years, most recently as Sydney group sales manager for Nova. Prior to this, she was agency account director with the business, a role she moved into from an agency account executive role in Adelaide.

Roach said she was thrilled to take on the new challenge.

“Nova Entertainment is committed to creating and sharing great experiences for our people, audience and partners. I’m thrilled to be given the opportunity to lead the Sydney Agency team and look forward to continue to drive business results for our client and agency partners,” she said.
