ad2one Announces Two New Hires in New Zealand

Michael Te Young and Candice Hsu to join digital sales house

Digital sales house ad2one today announces the appointment of former OMD Digital Director Michael Te Young to its senior management team.

Michael in conjunction with Johanna Cotter will be leading the expanding New Zealand team during the maternity leave of five year incumbent NZ Managing Director, Lisa Ison.

“I’m delighted that we will have someone of Michael’s calibre to continue to develop our digital strategies and grow our business during my absence,” said Lisa Ison. “His experience across agency, brand and consultancy will ensure that ad2one New Zealand remains the number one destination for advertisers looking to access premium vertical brands to connect with their target audience.”

Most recently an independent consultant, Michael spent seven years as Digital Director at OMD following a two year stint as Country Manager at Facilitate Digital (now Adslot) where he was responsible for launching the

 brand in New Zealand. Previously, he was a Digital Account Manager at APN News & Media.

“As a veteran of the New Zealand digital sector, the strength of ad2one’s premium publishing portfolio impressed me and I’m looking forward to working with the team to further accelerate the company’s national portfolio, advertiser reach and business performance.”

The company has also hired Candice Hsu as Agency Account Manager to extend and deepen relationships across the New Zealand ecosystem. Candice joins ad2one from Exponential where she spent three years as Senior Account Manager. Previously she was a Client Services Executive at Yahoo! New Zealand and began her career as a Trafficker at TVNZ.
