EditorA+D, News Make a Comment

NZ-owned and operated digital outdoor media business Lumo has taken on three senior staffers to help run the company’s fast-growing portfolio.

Stacey Gattsche, a stalwart of the outdoor advertising industry has committed long-term and extended her weekly hours to help power-up her market presence. “I love the fact that Lumo recognises my abilities whilst also allowing me time and flexibility to be an attentive mum to our young daughters” she said.

At the other end of the spectrum, Lumo has recently taken on Zac Columbus to fulfil the new role of agency account manager. Columbus has been surrounded by media his entire life, growing up with a father who was a radio broadcaster and a mother who spent much of her working life in media sales, Zac was always destined to end up in a career in media.

After a short stint with Lumo late last year, and impressing the owners, Columbus found what that career pathway should look like and joined the team in February. 

“Columbus has been surrounded by media his entire life, growing up with a father who was a radio broadcaster.”

“Zac is on a steep learning curve but he is very smart, likeable and keen to get involved,” said Lumo co-founder Kent Harrison.

And Jack Plowright, who recently resigned from a senior client leader role at Mindshare to travel overseas, will be joining the team as agency account director on July 23.

“Jack is a very talented and experienced media agency executive who is highly respected and trusted by his clients and peers alike,” Harrison said.

“His knowledge and insights will help Lumo strive towards becoming a leading light in the outdoor media sector, particularly around digital creativity, dynamic content management and technology integration.”

Sydney partnership
This staffing boost coincides with the recently announced exclusive sales partnership with Sydney-based WeThinkMedia, who are now representing Lumo’s portfolio in the Australian market. “This demonstrates on-going growth in momentum for the young digital outdoor business, which is now just six weeks away from launching its 10th digital billboard,” Harrison said.
