2019 Media i Awards: Nine wins National Sales Team of the Year

• Media i Awards acknowledge the important role media sales representatives play

The Media i Awards, recognising media sales excellence, were announced last night at a sold-out awards ceremony in Sydney.

Voted by peers, the Media i Awards acknowledge the important role media sales representatives play in the continual pursuit of media advertising excellence.

Introduced in 2011, the Media i Awards are the only awards dedicated to recognising the contribution of media owners.

This year more than 2100 media agency professionals voted across three categories:

• National Sales Team of the Year
• Sales Team of the Year by Market (NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia & South Australia)
• Sales Person of the Year by Category by Market (NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia & South Australia)

Media i’s Chris Winterburn

Charles Parry-Okeden, CEO Media i, spoke at the ceremony of the importance of collaboration between media agencies and media partners.

“These awards not only recognise the professionalism and excellence of sales individuals and teams, but the success they achieved for clients in collaboration with media agencies.

“We are extremely proud of tonight’s event. The response from our finalists has been overwhelming reinforcing the significance of this initiative to sales teams and individuals across the country. We would like to congratulate all of tonight’s winners on their fantastic achievement,” said Chris Winterburn, managing director Media i.
