To support its growing business across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Turner Media Innovations is welcoming back Simon Field as account director, ad sales strategy and planning. The appointment follows last year’s establishment of the Turner Media Innovations pan-EMEA division, which is designed to streamline multi-regional campaigns for advertisers across all target markets.
Reporting to Simon Cox, VP of Turner Media Innovations, Field will be part of the senior EMEA management team, which offers consultancy across areas such as ad sales, sponsorship & promotions, digital media, creative and research.
Field hails from The Walt Disney Company in Australia, where he was advertising sales and promotions director, responsible for building Disney’s media sales business both on-air and online.
Prior to his two years at Disney, Field was associate director of sponsorship & promotions at Turner Broadcasting’s Asia Pacific office, based in Hong Kong. He relocated to Hong Kong from Turner’s UK ad sales division.
