Go Media celebrates new Auckland GO-Getters
With 15 new sites to appear in Auckland over the next few months, Go Media have appointed some fresh faces to their Auckland-based sales team.
John Orfanos joins next week as Business Development Manager with a focus on growing Auckland-based direct clients. Orfanos brings with him a wealth of outdoor media and direct sales experience to Go Media, due to his time at QMS and Phantom most recently.
“Go has been a business I’ve been wanting to be a part of for a while, so when the opportunity came up to join the team I jumped at it. Go’s reputation in the outdoor space as a leader, and partnerships with the community are huge pluses for me and can’t wait to be involved,” says Orfanos.
Tyler Christie joined recently as Agency Account Manager, bringing a well-rounded perspective given his experience across agency, outdoor media vendors and being a client himself.
When the opportunity to take on a role at Go Media came up, Christie didn’t hesitate. “I felt excited to start with Go. It’s so cool to work for a New Zealand-owned media company, with such a fantastic network and coverage across New Zealand. Team dynamic is everything, and I think Simon, Mike, Parris and Dean did a great job on conveying how much of a great dynamic it really is to work at Go,” he says.
Katie Ujdur joined just as the team went into lockdown last August as Agency Account Manager. After finishing University, Ujdur began work at QMS Media and built up four years of direct client experience. Katie has been putting her experience, hard work ethic and energy into her agency clients.
“We’ve been building a rocket-ship over the last few years and 2022 is the year we light the fuse in Auckland. We will have an Auckland network of near 30 quality digital screens which the majority will be brand new, located in sought after areas outside the CBD. With such plans we recognised the need to recruit experienced outdoor salespeople with hunter instincts to compliment the strong team we already have. The Go Media family love having Katie and Tyler on board, and we are sure John with thrive in our environment too,” says Simon Teagle, GM at Go Media.
