Verizon Media has promoted Paul Sigaloff, expanding his remit beyond Australia and New Zealand to include the regions of India and South East Asia.
Sigaloff will become vice president of ANZ INSEA, effective April 1, and will lead the Verizon Media teams across India and South East Asia.
He will continue to be based in Sydney and sit on the boards of UnLtd and IAB Australia.
The move is recognition for Sigaloff’s leadership during a record year of growth for Verizon Media ANZ.
In 2020 monthly active users across Yahoo’s editorial brands grew 11%, with double digit business growth despite the headwinds in the wider market.
"This appointment is recognition of the great work and explosive growth coming out of the ANZ markets, which has been led and overseen by Paul," Verizon Media vice president of international sales Kristiana Carlet says.
"In the past two years the business has developed apace and created a blueprint for success we are keen to emulate.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how Paul transfers his learnings and supercharges our success across the wider region.”
Sigaloff has been in various roles within the business since 2014.
“This promotion is a reflection of the incredible work of the entire Verizon Media ANZ team, who pulled together to achieve great results during the most challenging of times," Sigaloff says.
“I’m looking forward to working even more closely with our talented teams in India and South East Asia to build on the strong foundations in these businesses. My priority is to take the time to learn from the successful initiatives in those markets and take a strategic approach to apply the most appropriate lessons from our ANZ success story to propel our evolution across the region.
“I’ll continue to be based in Sydney and will remain as committed as ever to the ANZ market, as well as through my work with UnLtd and the IAB Australia.”
