Agency Sales Team Restructure
We have recently restructured our agency print sales division to provide a clearer point of contact for media agencies across our entire print portfolio.
The new structure in London will comprise 4 trading teams which will provide a one-stop shop for all Mail Connected print media solutions, providing expertise across print, magazine and inserts solutions. Previously, the sales team was split into two newspapers sales teams, a magazine sales team and an inserts sales team.
The four new groups will focus on specific agencies, rather than specific areas of the Mail Newspapers portfolio and will be headed up by Steve Maddren, James Brook, Adam Gilsenan and Tracey Hendle. All Sales Managers will report jointly into Advertisement Director John Teal and Deputy Advertisement Director Rosemary Gorman.
Dan Levitt, formerly Head of Magazines, takes on the role of Head of Strategy, overseeing the Creative Solutions and Creative Design teams. Tim Kersen, who continues in a cross-platform planning manager role, will also report in to Dan Levitt.
John Teal, Group Advertisement Director, commented:
"Our agency customers are always looking for ways to work smarter by buying increasingly integrated media solutions and I am delighted to be in a position to announce a restructure of the agency sales team which will allow a single point of contact for all Mail print opportunities. This restructure will enable us to deliver a more streamlined and customer-focused service to our agency partners. In addition to this, the creation of the new position of Head of Strategy underlines our commitment to deliver highly creative, innovative and effective media ideas which provide exceptional communications cut-through."
