WIN boss joins CQ advertising firm
WIN Television’s Queensland general manager Geoff Massey is quitting his post to join SMR Advertising from January 11.
Paul Sweeney, the boss of SMR, one of Rockhampton’s top advertising agencies, announced the move yesterday.
Mr Sweeney was delighted.
“This is a coup for our business and clients,” he said.
“Geoff will bring a wealth of knowledge to all aspects of our business and work with myself and our team to position SMR as the pre-eminent service provider to our clients and media partners across the state.
“We have a number of very exciting projects unfolding in 2010 and Geoff is precisely the person we need to take these projects forward.”
Mr Massey will bring almost 25 years experience to SMR mainly in the areas of advertising, campaign management and television production.
Before moving to Central Queensland in 2007, he was general manager WIN NBN sales in Brisbane and he has also worked with the Seven and Nine networks in Sydney and Melbourne.
“My position with WIN Television has allowed me to gain a first-hand perspective on the local agency scene in Queensland and SMR is ideally placed for future expansion,” Mr Massey said in a statement.
“There are a number of strong forward-thinking operations in regional Australia but SMR is the stand-out, particularly here in Central Queensland.”
