Ten has revealed the names of four of the five key state sales managers for its in-house sales team, with two moving across from the current MCN team.
Damon Jackson becomes Melbourne sales director, while GM of Brisbane and South-East Queensland Angela Neville has added Brisbane sales director to her role.
Joining from MCN is current South Australian lead, Cameron Mudge, who will take on the role of Ten's new Adelaide sales director, while Paul Townsend will become sales director and GM for Perth.
Jackson and Neville’s roles are effective immediately, while Mudge and Townsend will join Ten in December.
The market sales directors will report to the incoming national sales director, who will be revealed shortly. The broadcaster will also name its Sydney sales director and digital sales director at the same time.
“With our brilliant entertainment programming line-up over the coming months, we have a great story to tell and more commercial opportunities than ever," Ten chief sales officer Rod Prosser says.
"Damon, Ange, Cam and Paul are experienced, well-respected leaders in their respective markets.
"They are also passionate about Ten, our multi-platform offering and what we can achieve by bringing the advertising sales team back in-house. Each of them are great ambassadors for Ten, having worked closely with the company for many years."
The appointments follow the recent sales leadership announcements of Michael Stanford as national creative director of Ten Imagine, its commercial production division; Tamar Hovagimian as head of Ten Effect, the new commercial partnership division and Gareth Tomlin as GM, data, insights and analytics.
Last month, Network Ten revealed the make-up of its new in-house sales team via a mass job ad on LinkedIn and its own site.
The company continues the search for roles across Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane and jobs include strategy, digital sales, sponsorship and integration, airtime sales, partnerships, sales operations, trading and business support.
The national call out followed the news that the now CBS-owned broadcaster would be ending its ad sales partnership with MCN, effective 1 January 2019.
