The Ozone Project, the advertising alliance of news publishers, has opened a new regional hub in Manchester.
The new base, which opens virtually for now, is intended to serve agencies and advertisers in the North.
Bill Dennett (pictured), Senior Agency Sales Manager at News UK, joins as Senior Agency Partner and will lead a team of five Manchester-based sales managers.
The Ozone Project was founded by News UK, Telegraph Media Group, Reach PLC and Guardian News & Media to provide advertisers with easy, streamlined access to premium audiences at scale.
In November of last year, the founding publishers announced further investment in Ozone driven by a four-fold growth during 2020.
Craig Tuck, CRO, The Ozone Project, said: “We are delighted to be opening our doors fully to the regions and with Bill’s appointment, we are set to build on our existing relationships with even greater focus and care.
“At a time when our founders are investing in and accelerating Ozone’s growth, it’s vitally important that we have the best talent on our team. We’ve already seen fantastic briefs and great work from the regional offices of our agency partners and now with Bill on board, we’re very excited at delivering bigger and better campaigns for our customers in 2021.”
