LONDON, UK, Sept. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Zoom Media Corp and its subsidiary, ClubCom International Limited, have struck an agreement with Boomerang Media Limited to repatriate all advertising sales for ClubCom digital networks in the UK in-house. Zoom Media and ClubCom are pleased to announce that Jill Lee has joined their team as UK Ad Sales Director. Jill Lee will direct all UK sales efforts and the development of strategic alliances with agencies and advertisers to create solutions addressing client digital needs. She will work from the firm's London offices effective immediately.
Prior to joining ClubCom, Jill Lee was Group Head Digital/Health Club Channel at Boomerang where she was responsible for developing digital solutions for ClubCom and other Boomerang digital offerings to the UK advertising community. Prior to Boomerang, Lee served as Client Sales Manager at JC Decaux.
"I would like to thank Boomerang for having been the media sales agent for ClubCom in the UK in these past three years. Although we enjoy working with Boomerang, we believe that time has come for us to handle the sales for our products in-house." said François de Gaspé Beaubien, Chairman and CEO of Zoom Media Corp.
"The growing importance of health and wellness as a lifestyle coupled with the erosion of traditional media's effectiveness creates an incredible opportunity for Zoom Media, with its unparalleled digital health and fitness network" said Lee. "Marketers who are not tapping into the consumer's interest in fitness as a way of life, are missing an opportunity to connect with audiences in meaningful ways."
