‘Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.’
Michael Keaton called filmmaking the ultimate team sport.
Managing, protecting and preserving client media is a team game too.
Meet the (sometimes) quiet achievers who are supporting your success.
Jonathan Armytage | CEO
Jonathan wants Preferred Media to be a trusted partner for every content creator or owner across Australia. He’s excited by new technologies and the opportunity to deliver better information and smarter client support.
Jonathan’s pioneering spirit isn’t limited to business. When he’s not at work he’ll be exploring different cultures, expanding his art collection or pushing boundaries in some other way.
Ian Oldham | Finance & Operations
Ian’s the one who steers our finances – making sure we have the funds to look after client content properly as well as to invest in new and better solutions.
When he’s not at work, he’s driving with the top down. Probably on the way to work.
Or he might be chilling out with some classical music.
Rob Dunn | Technical Services
Rob makes everything work. From data pipes for huge camera files to ingest processes to online access to email and phone, we turn to Rob. And he finds the right person to do it for him.
When Rob isn’t crunching bytes he might be found climbing on a cliff somewhere. Fully roped and secure, since we believe in protecting critical assets.
Bridget Holland | Marketing
As the strategic thinker behind Preferred Media’s marketing, Bridget tries to see everything from the client perspective. That’s a key driver for the Moving Images Moving Landscape Survey and Report, as well as blog posts investigating how the business of video content is changing.
Bridget has two cats, two children and a husband. She comes to work for a rest.
Andrew Temple | Client Services
Andrew’s the man to make our clients feel warm and fuzzy. But the way he does it isn’t at all fuzzy – he’s on top of issues even before they happen. Behind that laid-back exterior, he makes sure you get what you want.
After hours, Andrew divides his time between his girlfriend and his dog. Plus he cooks a mean curry.
Michelle Whitfield | Administration & Operations
Michelle’s the powerhouse behind day-to-day customer service and admin issues in Preferred Media. She sets up accounts, answers queries about content we’re storing and generally fixes things.
Outside work, Michelle’s working on the next great Australian novel. And keeping her encyclopaedic knowledge of reality TV up to date.
Dan Southey | Digital Operations
Our newest and brightest data wrangler, Dan’s the one who sorts out the media files you send us. He checks everything against your archive policy, fixes issues and deals with any problem files.
Dan’s life outside work used to be about uni studies, but he’s looking forward to graduating straight to the golf course.
Maria Romanova | Company Accountant
Maria is the spreadsheet genius of the business. She’s pretty good with our CRM data too. Analyses everything and everyone to keep us all on track.
Maria’s a bit of an international explorer. She’s also good at tracking down the best cake shops in Sydney for our team birthdays.
Tuty Young | Bookkeeper
Tuty cooks everything but the books. And we all eat it up! Tuty might have been brought in to manage accounts and payments, but she’s stepped up to care for all of us in the office with a perpetual supply of snacks and foods.
From what we can tell, she spends all her spare time cooking. For her family, but we get lots of leftovers. No problem with that!
