Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) July 25, 2006
In a move that shows that it is serious about doing business with the top end of town in online media and marketing, Viva9 has appointed one of the Internet Industry's most respected executives as CEO.
Shane was the co-founder and COO of BMCMedia Ltd, one of Australia’s largest online advertising networks, and one of the darlings of 'dotcom' in the late 90s, before being sold to Telstra to create what is now Sensis in 2002.
BMCMedia broke new ground in the network representation field, and is credited with introducing many of the key advertisers that are active in the market today. When asked why he selected Viva9 as his entry-point back into online media and advertising, Murray replied:
"Viva9 as a group has a tremendous business model and is one of Australia's faster growing Advertising networks. I see tremendous opportunities not only within the Australian Market, but also overseas.
We wanted to continue growing our business and owning Australia's largest premier affiliate network 'Commission Monster' gives our business the right foundation to take into the Asia.
We are currently in discussion with a number of companies throughout the Asia-Pac region," says Murray
Shane has more than 25 years of experience in the media and marketing industry, leading teams in companies including News Limited and Fairfax.
