In the newly created role, Wallis is responsible in leading The Instillery’s operations and delivery to customers and expanding its global footprint.

“Jamie has a rock solid understanding of global sales and operations which will be key as we continue to drive sustainable growth across the globe, beginning with The Instillery’s expansion into the UK in 2017."

In his most recent tole, Wallis was general manager of services at ReachLocal A/NZ, a leader in powering online marketing for local businesses. He was responsible for client retention across the whole region and managed 68 staff across marketing, client services, technology, performance and operations.

“I’m really pleased to join The Instillery Group and further foster the exceptional talent that exists within the group - it’s an exciting time for both the industry and for The Instillery in terms of growth,” says Wallis.

“I’m really looking forward to being part of an executive team that drives many more successes in market, with new products and an expansion into new regions on the horizon.”
