Seven West Media has appointed Brisbane sales director Natalie Harvey to replace outgoing Sydney counterpart Nikki Rooke, who returns to Southern Cross Austereo as national director of sales.

Harvey began her career in Sydney at Mediacom and rose through the ranks at media agency UM from client service manager in Sydney before moving to Brisbane to become to communications director and finally general manager of UM in Brisbane.

Network director of sales, Adam Elliott, said Harvey had been  a key factor in the success of Seven’s sales operations in Brisbane since joining two years ago as the city’s sales director.

“We are delighted that Natalie is joining us in Sydney,” Elliott said. “She has played a key role in Seven’s dominance in the Queensland market. She is well-regarded and respected and will lead a great team in the Sydney market as a key member of our network’s team.”

Harvey said she was looking forward to returning to Sydney when she takes on the new role in October.

After six years with Seven, Rooke is returning to Austereo where she has spent the majority of her career including heading up the Sydney sales team.

Rooke will take on the role of national head of sales, a job SCA chief sales officer Brian Gallagher said she was perfectly suited for given her passion for radio.
