Alamy Expanding Sales Operations In Middle East and Australia

Posted on 11/10/2011 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Alamy is expanding its direct sales operations with senior business development and sales staff in Australia and the Middle East.
Sascha Weis, former Senior Sales Manager for North America at Corbis, is relocating to Beirut to target the editorial and commercial markets in Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Dubai.
Rachel Wakefield, head of sales at Alamy, commented “Sascha has over 15 years of successful international management and sales experience in our industry and an in-depth knowledge of the Middle East. Sascha will be developing direct sales, increasing brand awareness, and attracting local content in this exciting market which has not been a focus for Alamy before."

Megan Bulmer, a former employee of Alamy UK who recently relocated to Australia, has re-joined the company to spearhead a drive to capture more of the market in the light of the recent Photolibrary acquisition.
Rachel elaborated: “Recent acquisitions in this region have left picture buyers facing less choice and rising prices, so the Australian market is crying out for alternatives. Alamy has the world’s largest collection of stock photography and this, coupled with our first class sales and customer service experience, makes us an obvious first choice for customers."

Alamy is also currently recruiting for a VP of Sales for their New York office to lead the next stage of growth and expansion in the US.
Alamy’s depth and diversity appeals to both the creative and editorial industries. Alamy adds 450,000 images a month and currently has 26 million images online. The company recently launched a news, sport and entertainment service and will be offering video to customers in early 2012.
