QMS has announced the restructuring of its sales management team to capitalise on its growth trajectory and its vision for the future.
The structure, which takes effect in February, sees Tim Murphy join the executive team in the new role of chief sales officer, with the responsibility for leading the sales function across the entire national QMS network, including the City of Sydney, streamlining the digital outdoor company’s focus on solution-based selling.
Murphy brings over 16 years of experience in the out-of-home sector, most recently as chief sales officer at oOh!media. He commences on Monday, 5 February 2024.
Alex Kerley continues in his role as chief revenue officer, leading QMS’ national and state-based sales teams (Agency, Independent and Direct) to deliver excellent customer service and drive revenue growth across the digital outdoor company’s product portfolio.
Mark Fairhurst, in his role as executive general manager, will continue to oversee and manage the preeminent City of Sydney portfolio from strategic business development, commercial and operational perspective, as well as maintaining responsibility for QMS’ trading function, including partnerships, pricing strategy and analytics.
Finally, Sara Lappage will expand her current customer-based operations role to assume full chief operating officer responsibilities. The expanded remit will see her responsible for the organisation’s corporate operating functions and its marketing, research, strategy and insights teams.
John O’Neill, QMS chief executive officer, said the changes were driven by the need to implement a structure to support this growth moving forward.
“This enhanced management structure enables us to maximise our next phase of growth. It is designed to position QMS for the long-term, allowing us to adapt to changing market trends and to embrace innovation. It is about fostering a culture of growth and excellence that will see us rise to new challenges, seize opportunities, and ensure our continued success and the success of our clients,” he said.
“These appointments, along with the broader Executive Team, will ensure that we have the right leadership and amazing teams throughout the business to champion this change,” he added.
