Ooh Media appoints Raechel Gavin as chief people & culture officer

Out-of-home provider Ooh Media has hired Raechel Gavin as its new chief people and culture officer, a role she’ll take up from 13 September. She replaces Steve Reid who has held the role since late 2018, and has left to start his own business, Culture Eats Strategy. 

Gavin was most recently group executive: people, culture and India analytics business at Quantium where she built the company’s human resources function from the ground-up.

Her HR experience also includes roles across the data science and media industries, having been people and culture director at Ninemsn for two years, and group HR director for Nova Entertainment between 2010 and 2013.

Ooh Media CEO, Cathy O’Connor, said Gavin will lead the people and culture team as the company focuses on new opportunities.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Raechel on board, as she has exactly the right kind of strategic leadership experience and commercial understanding to help us realise our ambitions as we continue to develop and grow our business.

“She is deeply committed to building a successful culture that allows colleagues to maximise their potential, whatever their role, and is a great fit for us. Raechel brings new ideas and a proven track record in delivering successful initiatives, and will be a valuable asset to our executive leadership team.”

Gavin’s previous jobs include work for the Australian Government in Canberra, as well as various senior HR roles at Bain & Company, Clayton Utz, Herbert Smith Freehills and Qantas.
