Dow Jones hires Molloy in senior sales role
Regional - Dow Jones has filled top sales rank appointing Dan Molloy as global executive director of multi-media sales for Asia Pacific.
In his new role, Molloy (pictured) will be responsible for driving and growing advertising and sponsorship revenue for the Wall Street Journal franchise and Dow Jones media properties across the region.
He will work with its advertising sales teams in Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, China and Korea to drive opportunities for the franchise.
Based in Hong Kong, he will report to Etienne Katz, vice president of multi-media sales Dow Jones for the Wall Street Journal franchise in New York.
Christine Brendle, publisher of The Wall Street Journal Asia and managing director of Dow Jones & Company in Asia Pacific, said Molloy's appointment corresponds with Dow Jones' expansion into online, digital and mobile platforms.
She added Asia is a strategically important market in terms of ad revenue for the company, particularly in the US and Europe where Asia-based companies are increasingly building their operations.
The news comes shortly after last week’s appointment of Kendrew Yu as marketing director and Doris Chan as regional head of events and conferences.
