Cohort celebrates end of the financial year

At Cohort we celebrated the end of a great financial year with our colleagues from the Pureprofile and Sparcmedia team. We were joined by Wout van Damme from Sparcmedia and Luke O’Brien and Paul Chan from Pureprofile. We had a brilliant time at Hai Cenato with plenty of delicious food and flowing drinks. The event was a great success.

As well as celebrating a strong end to the year, we say goodbye to Heloise Hotson and wish her the best in her future endeavours.  Heloise was a great addition to the company as the US Commercial Manager. We look forward to see what she does in the future.

Effective 1 July 2017, Mr William Langton has become the Global Managing Director of Cohort and  joined the Pureprofile leadership team. He will now oversee the management of Cohort. Will was one of Cohort’s first employees and has been the Chief Financial Officer at Cohort for over seven years. Most recently, Mr Langton was instrumental in leading the Cohort sale process on behalf of Cohort’s vendors and has been assisting with the development and implementation of the integration plan.

Cohort founders, Marcelo Ulvert and Malcolm Treanor, have stepped down from their daily operational roles, effective 4 July 2017. However, they will continue to assist with any remaining handover matters by the Company until 31 December 2017.

Pureprofile will boost its data and profile capabilities whilst Cohort will have the opportunity to cross-sell additional products within its lead generation services.

Commenting on the appointment of Mr Langton, Pureprofile CEO, Mr Chan said: “I congratulate and welcome Will as Global Managing Director of Cohort. As a Cohort employee from day one and with the level of detailed understanding of and enthusiasm he possesses for the business, there is no one better suited to take the business to the next level.”

Meet our Sales Intern - Guy

What does your average day look like?

My usual mornings consists of sales prospecting. I technically find new business to pass on to the sales team. It’s a great feeling when you find a good match for the business and it’s the best time to catch-up with the rest of the team. 

In the afternoon, I internally investigate leads that require double checking for clients. I make sure that there are no issues caused by our data. Attention to detail is very important. 

What is your favourite part of the job?

Taking control of the music in the office. But more importantly, I was able to intern in both the Australia and London office, which is a great perk! 

If you weren’t a Sales Intern what other role could you see yourself in?

I’d want the CEO’s job.

How do you describe your job to people who ask what you do?

Essentially, I bring in new business opportunities.

What’s the most unusual thing you’d done at Cohort?

I became a pint of Guinness by spraying my hair white. It was great. 

Any tips for someone who wants to work here?

My biggest tips would be have a lovely attitude and good banter.

The Sydney office had a great time raising funds for the Cancer Council and taking part in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. We were able to raise over $1000!

Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is an opportunity for Australians to raise money for a brilliant cause. The raised funds help to make a real difference in the Cancer Council’s research, prevention and services programs.  Cancer Council is the nation’s leading cancer charity, uniting the community, creating hope, providing support and saving lives.

Maral Kellet, our Ad Operations Manager, made an amazing effort to organise the event. Delicious tea alongside an assortment of breakfast snacks was provided. Raffle prizes were awarded and Rhonda White drew professional portraits of the team.

The UK visits the Australian office

Last week, the Australian office was visited by our Network Manager, Tanya Mertens, and our Senior Account Manager, Catherine Jones.

The purpose of this trip was for both the UK and Australian teams to share processes, structures, and their best practices to obtain global maturity and alignment on how we work with our partners and key clients.

Visits like these enable us to further develop our vision of global alignment among our international offices and other companies within the PureProfile group. The sharing of ideas is key to further growth and Tanya and Cat’s contributions to the Australian team, both commercially and culturally, were well received. We look forward to more visits like this in the future!

“It was great to get an understanding of their processes and become more globally aligned.”

Christmas 2016 in the Sydney Office

The Sydney office had a great time at the annual Christmas party. We have had a brilliant year and we are looking forward to 2017.

At Cohort, we like to get involved in creating positive changes in our community by giving back, which is why Cohort has enjoyed the opportunity to support the Weave Youth & Community Service in South Sydney since 2009. This is a non-profit community organisation that has been working with vulnerable children and women for over 35 years. As part of our annual Christmas party, we organised yet another one with lots of presents and a cheerful Santa with his Elves. You can read more about it by clicking here.

Yet again, we would like to use this occasion to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
