A Letter To Our Clients; Nick Materia, CEO, ReadyMediaGroup
Posted by Commercial Ready on Nov 04, 2020

As a valued client, I’m contacting to you today to share some exciting news plus briefly touching on our journey throughout the Covid epidemic.

Undoubtedly a very turbulent year for many of which the Ready Media Group was not immune. As Covid hit Australia in mid-March, there has been many volatile occurrences in all facets of our life. Like many businesses our office was temporarily closed, and our team were sent packing to work from home. During this period a significant meeting with our management team resulted in galvanising our resolve and objectives moving forward. Clearly, we had three key objectives to achieve; keep our team together, continue servicing our clients better than ever and continue focusing on our on-going product innovations, ensuring we remained ready to rebound strongly. Currently our 2020 road map is in full swing and progressing quicker than anticipated.

Recruitment of 5 Key REA Sales Professionals to The Ready Media Group
Reflective of Ready Media Group’s inclusive company culture we have been able to attract five of the industry’s best performers to join our team. Jake Ragkousis from Queensland, Damien Soltan and Michael Bevilaqua from Victoria, Michael Arcobelli from South Australia and Nick Mihalopoulos from NSW.  Many of you may know one or several of these new team members – with their addition, Ready Media Group now boasts the most experienced sales team in the commercial portal space.
