Andy Jones – Advertising Consultant (Innisfail)
I have had a fantastic career to date mainly in Sales and Marketing roles for some incredible companies.
I spent 18 years with Sony Music Australia. I joined Sony Music Australia in a sales manager role in their Sydney Head Office and moved into the marketing division to further explore my appetite for creating creative campaigns for a myriad of artists. My marketing role went from strength to strength and I was fortunate to be promoted to Vice President Global Marketing- Asia and was based in Hong Kong and Singapore reporting through to New York.This experience with Sony Music gave me a passion for advertising and an appreciation of how effective radio can be to engage a radio audience to exciting products.
I then left the music industry and moved into Real Estate for 5 years in the beautiful Blue Mountains west of Sydney – selling and marketing some outstanding properties. Real Estate is all about understanding your customer and matching relevant properties they can call their forever home.
Its similar to radio – understanding the client and their business objective and building a campaign that gives their product and services strength through an audible means.
I moved to the Cassowary Coast in early 2019 and absolutely love the region – the people, the landscape, the weather (yes I love it!) and the diverse businesses make this an ideal location to live.
The locals really support the locals and that’s what I now do in radio advertising – local supporting locals.
Janna Bazzacco – Advertising Consultant
I grew up on the Atherton Tablelands and have worked throughout the Gulf and Cape for most of my life. As a child I competed with horses on the Atherton Tablelands and Cassowary Coast region so I am no stranger to the area.
I moved to Innisfail and began my career as a Sales Consultant with NQ Radio in 2019 and I am very passionate about my job and love my career as a radio sales consultant. I have previously managed and owned business so I am aware of how effective advertising can be to enhance and promote small businesses within this region.
I manage radio advertising for businesses in Innisfail, Babinda, Millaa Millaa, Malanda and Ravenshoe. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to see small business within our region grow and thrive due to radio advertising.
