Sarah Johnson joins SKMG
Strategic communications consultancy, Shoebridge Knowles Media Group (SKMG), has appointed Sarah Johnson to the new role of PR Director.
She joins SKMG from Paramount Australia and New Zealand, where she was Head of Publicity, leading the Publicity team across Channel 10, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount+, 10 Bold, 10 Peach, 10 Shake, and 10 Play. Sarah spent 12 years at Paramount / Network 10 in total.
She is also a former Publicity Manager at Endemol Shine Australia, and held previous roles at Foxtel, Maria Farmer Public Relations and Universal Music Australia.
SKMG Co-Founder and Partner, Neil Shoebridge, said: “Sarah is one of the best in the business and I’m delighted to welcome her to the team. Smart, strategic, enthusiastic and incredibly well-connected, she will be a real asset for our clients and our business.”
The news follows a period of expansion for SKMG, which began as a partnership between Neil Shoebridge and Andrew Knowles in 2018. In addition to the creation of Sarah’s role, the past three months have seen the business appoint a new communications consultant and promote Sam Somers to the role of General Manager.
