Adshel appoints Christie Tanner as senior account manager

News Release 22nd June 2015

Outdoor advertising company Adshel has announced the return of Christie Tanner to its Auckland sales team. Ms Tanner has re-joined the company as senior account manager.

Reporting to group sales manager Simon Paul, Ms Tanner will be managing a portfolio of agency clients including OMD, Dynamo and Spark PHD.

Mr Paul said: “I am delighted to be welcoming Christie back into the team, particularly following the recent launch of Adshel LIVE in the New Zealand market.”

Ms Tanner left Adshel in 2014 to take up the role of agency account manager with Clear Channel UK (CCUK) in London. In this role, she was responsible for client relationship and revenue management, working on the Talon/Posterscope agency team in presenting creative concepts and selling across the entire CCUK product portfolio including Adshel, billboards, digital billboards, Storm (premium digital billboards), static and digital mall signage and socialite (digital bar network).

Mr Paul continued: “The experience Christie has gained selling across a digital out-of-home medium in a market at the forefront of innovation will be invaluable to the team. In addition, her exposure to selling across CCUK’s full product portfolio is something we will be keen to tap into to ensure we continue to provide our advertisers with the right solution for the right briefs.”

Adshel NZ general manager Nike Vile said: “Our team is going through a transitional period and the appointment of Christie, who has a wealth of experience, product knowledge and expertise, will be important in realising the potential of the Adshel NZ products. We have ambitious plans through the back half of the year as we look to capitalise on the growth opportunities available to us, via both the current market dynamics and the new products in our portfolio, and having Christie return to the team will go a long way in supporting the plans.”

Ms Tanner has over eight years experience in outdoor media sales in some of the world’s leading out-of-home advertising companies including OGGI Advertising, Adshel, Clear Channel UK and Val Morgan Outdoor. Her appointment is effective immediately.
