MoMedia International, a UK-based producer and distributor of video for assorted digital platforms, has made three new account manager hires for its UK and Australia offices.

Sarah Leese and Sukai Eccleston will be UK-based while Sarah Kirkby will operate out of Australia and all three will oversee content acquisition, customer analytics and marketing.

Leese was previously the commercial analysis business manager for Channel 5, and prior to that, was the programming manager at the broadcaster. At MoMedia, she will focus on customer analytics.

Eccleston will focus on content acquisitions in her new role. She comes to MoMedia from Readers’ Digest, where she served as executive producer and managed the development of new editorial content.

Kirkby joins MoMedia from Australia’s Nine Network, where she was digital marketing and content manager. In her new role, she will work on VoD promotions and marketing.

In a statement, Lucas Bertrand, CEO of MoMedia International said, “These appointments have been made to grow our clients’ retail VoD sales and to help them grow their VoD customer base. The appointment of Sarah Kirkby also establishes a local presence for MoMedia in Australia, which is a key territory as we continue to expand globally.”
