AUCKLAND, Monday: Vistar Media, a global provider of programmatic technology for digital out-of-home, has appointed Jack Manning as its new account director for New Zealand (NZ) to support further expansion in the region.

Auckland-based NZ sales & partnership director Sandra Scott said: “Jack joins Vistar Media from Auckland agency Acquire Data-Driven Advertising, where he held various sales and managerial roles for the past six years.

“Now, reporting under myself, and Sydney-based APAC managing director Ben Baker, he brings demand-side platform expertise to support the team’s aspirations in growing the DOOH category within the region.

“Furthermore, he will act as on-the-ground support and resource to agencies and brands looking to maximise advertising campaigns with DOOH and optimise business investments.”

Manning said, “I’ve had the opportunity to work with multiple platforms over the years to help clients achieve an optimal competitive advantage while keeping pace with the dynamic adtech landscape.

“I was fascinated by Vistar’s comprehensive, data-driven approach to campaigns that are proven to be effective and measurable. I look forward to working with the team to continue to grow the company’s positive presence in the region.”

“Since bringing on-the-ground demand support to New Zealand over the last six months, we’ve seen a sharp growth within our business.”

Scott added, “Since bringing on-the-ground demand support to New Zealand over the last six months, we’ve seen a sharp growth within our business. We are thrilled to have Jack join our team during a vital time to continue establishing key relationships and enable data-driven, automated, measurable DOOH transactions for our clients.”

Scott continued, “With the increased demand for programmatic DOOH access to New Zealand’s inventory, Jack’s appointment will help us meet the growing needs of media partners and suppliers in the region.

“We are proud to work with our partners and look forward to connecting more marketers, media owners and audiences as our team continues to grow.”
