Emap Advertising has appointed Jane Kelsey, the former client sales director for The Guardian, as the director of its market development division. Kelsey, formerly Davies, joins Emap from the American-owned website Inshop.co.uk, where she has spent just over a year as the UK managing director.
Kelsey began her career as a sales executive at The Guardian before moving on to become the head of features and the publisher of the Space and Guide supplements. She spent three years as the client sales director before leaving to join Inshop, which provides shoppers with information on retail outlets in different British cities. Kelsey said her latest move was not an indication of difficulties at the website.
Kelsey will be responsible for developing cross-media deals across Emap's portfolio of magazines, TV, radio and online brands. She will focus primarily on the film, drinks, music and automotive markets and will report to Emap Advertising's managing director, Tom Toumazis.
'Jane is a great addition,' Toumazis said. 'She has a wealth of experience and her knowledge and enthusiasm will bring an added dimension to the team.'
