As The Orchard’s newest team member I wanted to quickly introduce myself to you all. I’ll be looking after Client and Retail Marketing for The Orchard in Australia and New Zealand based in Sydney.
I come from a product management and marketing background working for Australia’s leading independent distribution company Inertia Pty Ltd. and running my own consultancy. During my time at Inertia I looked after masses of labels and releases both from the AU/NZ territory as well as scores of international labels and licensed titles from artists and labels including UNKLE, Jill Scott, Def Jux, The Antlers, Rawkus, Echo & The Bunnymen, Soul Jazz Records, Catskills, Full Time Hobby and literally hundreds more over my 7 years with them.
Apart from The Orchard, my passions include managing a couple of developing Australian bands – Greta Mob and Lo Five – and doing special events featuring International and Interstate musicians and DJs in intimate Sydney spaces with my crew Lioness Presents.
Amongst other things I enjoy great art across all media, cooking for my friends and family, reading, drinking awesome wine, urbex and streetart, traveling and getting out of the city into the bush and of course getting out regularly to see live music!
A massive thanks to everyone I have met so far from The Orchard family — it’s an honour to be part of such a great company and I can’t wait to get to work with you and all our clients in Australia and New Zealand!
