The new team will develop and manage online advertising campaigns for its international brands across Glam Media’s portfolio of websites.
Isabelle Sommet and Candace Droz have been appointed co-directors of international sales.
Sommet has worked at Lagardere Media for 15 years, with roles as international commercial director at Hachette UK, and international sales director and advertising director at Elle International, Paris.
Droz joins the international sales team from Glam Media in Chicago where she was Midwest account executive. Previously she was a senior account executive at CNET Networks Entertainment.
The international sales team will be responsible for leveraging existing advertiser relationships or establishing new ones where required.
The company currently has international offices in the UK, France, German and Japan. The appointment comes at a time when Glam Media reports increased demand from multinational advertisers, particularly premium brands for integrated, global advertising solution.
Earlier this year in London, Glam Media appointed Jane Loring as MD for Glam Media UK, who joined from Microsoft UK where she was director of specialist sales.
