WA-based independent media outlet Perth Is OK! has this week announced the appointment of Laura Heys, former Marketing Executive at Network 10, to the role of Account Manager.
After spending the past five years working across several roles at Network 10, Heys brings a wealth of experience to the burgeoning media company that continues raising its own bar for success in 2022.
Perth Is OK! Co-Founder and Director, Luke Whelan, said bringing Heys on board was the next logical step for the company as it continues its rapid growth into new and exciting markets.
“We’re delighted to welcome Laura to our growing team in the role of agency-facing account management. I’m very excited to see Laura harness her deep understanding of the WA media landscape and apply it to the exciting world of contextually relevant digital content and the rapidly expanding Perth Is OK! channels,” says Whelan.
Heys, who was a Founding Director of Mens Talk, a not-for-profit centred around men’s mental health and wellness – joins fellow Perth Is OK! Account Manager Casey Edmonds to provide a multi-faceted approach to working with some of Western Australia’s largest and most-trusted brands, including Bankwest, RAC, REIWA and HBF.
With experience spanning marketing, public relations and partnerships, Heys sees the move as an exciting opportunity to be involved in a thriving and engaged digital community.
“I’m looking forward to working on existing and new opportunities to collaborate with our partners and benefit our clients and the audiences we love. I’ve been impressed watching Luke and Blake (Kelleway, Co-Founder/Director) build the brand from the ground up and am thrilled to be part of the next chapter,” said Heys.
