Food magazine’s group advertising sales manager in a recent recruiting

frenzy.



BBC Good Food and BBC Vegetarian Good Food’s Chris Goldson and E-Space’s

three other new salespeople have all been drafted in to work on the

Tesco account.



The team will handle sponsorship, e-commerce, partnership and content

agreements for Tesco’s online ventures. These include Tesconet - the

free ISP - and the supermarket’s online shopping service Tesco Direct,

which launched an extensive advertising campaign last week.



Aside from Goldson, who has joined as advertisement manager, E-Space has

recruited Nigel Weekes as advertising and sponsorship executive from

Forward Publishing where he was advertising sales executive on the Tesco

contract titles.



The third new addition is Jonathan Scott, who joined E-Space as

e-commerce manager from Warner Brothers with a brief to develop

e-commerce opportunities on the Tesco websites.



Finally, ex-AOL UK online ad executive Pam Sharpless has joined as

content and partnerships manager.



E-Space handles sponsorship, e-commerce and content and partnership

agreements as well as editorial for clients, which include the business

extranet service Reuters City Screen and free IPSs Freeserve and Net

Direct.



It also has a shareholding in the sports web sales house New Media

Marketing & Sales and owns Anorak.com.



E-Space managing director Neil Morgan said he was still searching for

extra sales staff. ’I am delighted to have such experienced and

enthusiastic team players but we’ve always got space for more good sales

people,’ he said.
