QMS expands sales team, appoints programmatic and Impulse GMs

QMS has announced the expansion of its sales and product teams, with several promotions as well as multiple newly created roles with a view to enhancing client serving capabilities.

Chief revenue officer Alex Kerley said the promotions are designed to further enhance QMS’ market presence as it continues to implement its strategic growth initiatives.

“With our current growth momentum and increased market demand, these new roles will further enhance our team’s ability to focus on quality customer service delivery and help our clients maximise the speed, flexibility, data and creative opportunities that exist for them when planning and buying digital out of home,” Kerley said.

“Our team of group business directors have been integral in helping to grow and shape QMS to where we sit today, and these promotions are a reflection of their hard work and dedication to excellence.”

David Sutherland has been promoted to general manager of large format and programmatic, becoming responsible for expanding QMS’ position in digital and Programmatic Out-Of-Home (PDOOH) and working out of the Sydney team.

Also returning to Sydney from the the Victorian sales team, Andrew Robertson has been named GM of Impulse – QMS’ mass broadcast digital network positioned across 7-Eleven convenience stores and petrol stations. Robertson has been tasked with expanding the small-format digital network nationally. QMS won 7-Eleven’s digital advertising portfolio in March last year.

Chief customer officer, Mark Fairhurst, said: “David’s new role is crucial to the future vision we have for PDOOH as an enhancement to clients’ existing DOOH strategies. For the past two years, David has helped lead the charge on our PDOOH approach and his experience and understanding of the media, outdoor and programmatic sectors will allow QMS to help continue leading the industry into its promising programmatic future.

“ I am also pleased to welcome Andrew back to the Sydney office where he will now have the exciting opportunity to lead our IMPULSE offering nationally. In just over six months, the demand for our re-invigorated 7-Eleven digital network continues to grow and we are pleased to have Andrew’s industry and product experience to help develop this offering even further.”
