Chief Revenue Officer, Michael Hudes, said Luke’s promotion would see the ANZ operation handed over to a highly capable leader.

In Luke, we’re lucky to have a seasoned professional with the depth of Media and Commercial sales experience. He has the leadership skills to drive an expert team around him and we’re excited by the opportunities that the Asian Pacific region as a whole provides our new end-to-end programmatic offering, so I look forward with confidence to this next phase of growth.”

Luke joined RadiumOne (now RhythmOne) in 2016 and has over 18 years of experience in advertising and media across digital, radio, publishing, content and TV.

I look forward to leading the ANZ operation through the next phase of growth, driven largely through the RhythmOne products now available in Australia.
