Jeremy Simpson has been promoted to the position of group general manager, national sales & marketing at regional radio owner Grant Broadcasters.
Simpson (pictured) will now be responsible for all national revenue through Grant Broadcasters’ sales representation company TRSN, as well as a range of other sales and marketing projects for the broader group.
Grant Broadcasters’ new COO, Rick Lenarcic, announced the appointment this week and said: “The time is now right for us to consolidate the operations of TRSN under one senior executive. Jeremy has a huge amount of experience leading national sales teams and he also knows how to work effectively with local station managers. We will also utilise Jeremy’s extensive management experience across the wider Grant Broadcasters company.”
“I have worked closely with the TRSN teams for the past two years and know that we deliver an excellent service to our agency and client partners. Combining the 53 Grant Broadcasters stations with our incredibly strong independent network partners we have the largest portfolio of regional radio stations in Australia, so for a small team we pack a powerful punch,” said Simpson.
Simpson will join Grant Broadcasters’ senior leadership team reporting directly to Rick Lenarcic. The appointment is effective immediately.
As well as interests in 53 regional radio stations, Grant owns a sales representation company (TRSN) representing a further 70 independent radio networks and stations, publish several local lifestyle magazines and have a significant online presence in local markets.
