New Zealand’s largest advertising network, AdHub has appointed Garry Jordan as their general manager. Attracting an audience of over 900,000 a month through its network of websites which include realestate.co.nz, interest.co.nz, Golf.co.nz and NZX.com to name a few.
Jordan, whose depth of experience includes time in media sales with Prime and Sky TV, was most recently General Manager in Lassoo Media. He has already started at AdHub and says he was attracted by the opportunity.
“AdHub has been growing significantly in audience and ad revenue and that is set to continue as demand for digital and quality environments grows. They are leading the way in ‘native’ advertising and I am excited by the opportunities around programmatic and creative services offerings.”
NZME’s Group Director Digital Laura Maxwell-Hansen says securing Jordan is a real coup.
“Garry is highly respected in the industry having worked in media for many years with experience on both sides of the media owner / agency fence. This, combined with his strong digital knowledge and experience building the Lassoo business for the past eight years, make him the perfect person to lead AdHub through what will be an exciting period of growth and development. It was a matter of right time right place and we couldn’t be happier to have Garry at the helm.”
