OOH company Go Transit appoints Marika James as agency sales director

Sub-metro and regional OOH company Go Transit has appointed Marika James to the newly created role of Sydney agency sales director.

James moved to Sydney in 2016

James will oversee all business out of Sydney agencies across 400 submarkets around the country.

James has been with Go Transit since 2014, stepping into a sales support role straight out of university. She moved into an account manager role in the Queensland offices before taking the leap and moving to Sydney in 2016.

Paula Kerr-Hay, group national sales director, said James had been an outstanding team member.

“Her dedication and commitment to our company has been exemplary. I am incredibly proud that her efforts have been acknowledged by this promotion. It is really pleasing to see a capable and empowered young woman step up into a senior management role”, she said.

“Sydney is a very different market to Brisbane and Marika was determined to forge new ground, quickly. I wholeheartedly congratulate Marika on her achievements and in her new role, I am confident she will continue to inspire and drive her team to be the best they can be.”

James said her ability to establish solid partnerships has helped her progress her career in such a short amount of time.

“The part I love most about media sales is the opportunity to build strong and enduring relationships with our agency partners,” said James.

These are built on trust and integrity, two values which are very important to me – both personally and professionally. I am also proud to be part of an inclusive company which not only supports, but actively encourages, the progression of young women.”
