AUSTRALIA — Horizon Media’s former CEO and head of sales Jane Nicholls is joining Ipsos MediaCT as commercial director to oversee the launch of a new audience readership survey.

Nicholls will be a key figure in the launch of Emma, Enhanced Media Metrics Australia – the newspaper and magazine readership study being developed by Ipsos MediaCT on behalf of print body The Readership Works.

She said: “I am really excited about this new role at Ipsos MediaCT and to be part of the go-to-market team for this world-class audience survey. I am ready to embrace the challenge ahead and develop a compelling offer for our clients.”
