Adstream appoints new business development manager

An interest in broadcasting brings Allan Bruty (pictured) to Adstream where he takes on the role of business development manager.

The choice to join Adstream was easy for Bruty. “I have known Adstream for some time now and have long felt it is a dynamic organisation with market-leading products,” he said.

Prior to Adstream, Bruty was an agency account manager at Sensis where he was involved in a business initiative to develop and establish relationships with media and creative agencies across Australia.

This background makes him a much-valued addition to Adstream, according to managing director Peter Miller. “Allan’s experience and expertise in sourcing new broadcast opportunities will be instrumental to our combined success,” he said.

The broadcast industry has always been of interest to Bruty, so it is not surprising that he is enjoying his time at Adstream. “The term ‘broadcast’ is an evolving one and includes cutting-edge technologies and diversifying media platforms,” he said.

“In particular, I am looking forward to creating new business opportunities from organic growth and new clients, as well as getting involved in creative and logistical project and having to think outside the square.”

A perfect fit for Mario

His experiences with Stockdale Print Staff left a lasting impression of Mario De Santis; enough to make him join the team.

For 10 years, De Santis worked as a production manager at Sony DADC but decided that he wanted a change of direction. “I had used Stockdale when I was at Sony and was impressed with the calibre of their staff,” he said.

He has now taken on the position of team manager, where his duties include looking after and recruiting clients and liaising with different clients. Originally a printer, De Santis now enjoys the constant interaction with new faces that the new role gives him.

“What I like best about this job is meeting a variety of different people, being able to fulfil jobs and getting the satisfaction of placing people in the right roles,” he said.
