ACM wins big at PANPA

September 2017

It was an exciting night for Australian Community Media (ACM) at 2017 PANPA Advertising Awards when ACM National Sales Adelaide took out the two major sales awards. It’s an incredible achievement for the small team.

Meg Marsh took out Sales Manager of the Year which was a testament to the work she has done with her team. Meg paid tribute to her family who moved with her from Fairfax New Zealand so she could take on the role. Meg’s success in the position was again reflected when Adelaide took out Sales Team of the Year with John Boonen and Matthew Bagnara.

ACM National Sales Sydney also secured two Highly Commended – Ian Bellert for Sales Manager of the Year and Sam Woods for Creative Professional of the year.

Other ACM winners on the night included: Mudgee Guardian for Digital Advertising – Best Single Advertisement for a Client – Community Title; The Land’s Glove box guide to mental health picked up Best Cause-Related Campaign or Community Service – Regional Title; and The Standard, Warrnambool won Sponsorship of the Year – Regional with The Standard / Warrnambool Turf Club – May Race Carnival.
