Ad manager takes up post
THE Morning Bulletin has welcomed new advertising manager Matthew Sherry.
Mr Sherry comes to the company from one of The Bulletin's sister publications in New Zealand, The Wairarapa Times-Age which is about an hour from Wellington on the north island.
"I'm delighted to join the team at The Bulletin and am looking forward to immersing myself in the Rockhampton business community,'' he said.
"My wife Raewin and I are both keen fishermen and we can't wait to wet a line here. I am also keen to take advantage of Rocky's great weather to sharpen up my golf game.''
Mr Sherry has an extensive advertising background with more than 20 years in newspapers as well as television experience.
Before being advertising manager at The Wairarapa Times-Age, he was assistant ad manager at The Dominion-Post for seven years.
He also owned and operated his own advertising company in New Zealand.
Mr Sherry is part of a new-look management team taking the reins at The Bulletin, joining new editor Steve Etwell who has been on the job about five weeks.
"I heartily endorse the Readers First program Steve is running and I think the 'Live here 'cause we love it' campaign is a brilliant idea.
"This is a great new challenge for me and I am confident we can do special things at The Bulletin for our advertisers and readers.
