Parnell-based QMS Media New Zealand is pleased to announce the appointment of Henry Rowley in the role of Account Manager, primarily focused on transit and outdoor media product delivery.   

Henry bolsters the fast growing QMS NZ team, and is the sixth senior executive to join the company this year.  He is an award winning communications planner with over 5 years’ experience in the industry.

Henry worked primarily for OMD, and more recently ZenithOptimedia and Starcom, across a variety of clients within the FMCG, technology, tourism, and sporting sectors.

“Our growth is driven by our people,” said Cameron Taylor, General Manager, QMS New Zealand.  “We welcome Henry and look forward to leveraging his experience, extensive knowledge of the media industry, and understanding of the out-of-home media landscape. He’ll be instrumental in driving business growth through our new outdoor advertising assets as well as supporting new transit advertising mediums as they become available.”

Henry’s agency experience will be invaluable to the QMS team.

“We needed someone who understands our combined services approach and has the right agency experience to leverage it.  Our complimentary OOH, PR and experiential services are in demand and our client base is increasingly asking for integrated campaigns,” said Taylor.

QMS is growing rapidly in more than just headcount.  The company’s rebrand and alignment with QMS Media has allowed it to capitalise on its core out-of-home business while winning new business across experiential and PR.

2016 will be another significant year of investment and growth in QMS NZ’s offering and we are positioning the business to be able to service this growth with high calibre sales professionals such as Henry,” said Taylor.

QMS Media is a publicly listed company on the Australian Stock Exchange.  QMS is a leading outdoor media company specialising in premium landmark digital and static billboards and street furniture in Australia; ambient, experiential, retail and transit media in New Zealand; and billboards and transit in Indonesia.

The big four publishers behind KPEX (see story on this page) have appointed a recent arrival in NZ, Duncan Arthur, as its inaugural consulting ceo.

Duncan Arthur has over 18 years of digital advertising experience gained in both media owner and agency roles in the UK and Australia, most recently as commercial director at The Guardian Australia, which he joined at launch to establish all local sales operations.

Prior to this role, he was country manager for US-based native advertising pioneer Say Media (formerly VideoEgg).

He was also director of digital services at Initiative, where he launched and developed the Australian digital media planning and buying operations working across major local and international brands including Emirates, Hyundai, Macquarie Bank and Fairfax.
