dmg Radio Australia is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Colosimo to the role of Sydney Agency Sales Director.
Most recently Peter was Sydney Sales Director for ARN, a role he has held for the last two years. Peter takes over the reins from Danika Johnston who leaves dmg Radio after 8 years to have her second child and focus on her young family.
Peter has been employed by ARN for 12 years, starting in direct sales before taking a break from his radio career as General Manager of a beauty business. He returned to ARN as Sales Manager of Mix 106.5 FM, and was then promoted to General Sales Manager of Mix before becoming the Sydney Agency Sales Director.
Peter Charlton, dmg Radio Australia’s Group Sales Director said “Those in media sales in Sydney and particularly those working in radio would be well aware of Peter’s stellar performance leading ARN’s agency sales team in Sydney over the last couple of years. His heritage in direct radio sales mixed with a tough but very successful time in national agency sales makes him an ideal addition to our team”.
“True to his Italian roots, we hear Peter is pretty accomplished with a soccer ball at his feet,” said Charlton.
Peter takes up his role at dmg Radio early in 2013.
