BAM Media has announced that experienced media and public relations consultant Ben Beazley has joined its staff as General Manager -- Australia.

Beazley's appointment comes as part of an on-going expansion for BAM Media in both Australia and internationally with new offices being opened in Melbourne, Victoria and Charlotte, North Carolina in the Unites States this week.

BAM Media, established in 1991, is a media, marketing, management and event company that lists several major international events, athletes and companies as its clients.

Beazley will over-see the daily workings of a new Melbourne office as well as the company's existing base on Queensland's Gold Coast.

He will work directly with BAM Media's Managing Director, Brett "Crusher" Murray, who will split his time between Australia and the US, where BAM is already establishing an enviable reputation under the banner of BAM North America.

"I have always had pride in BAM Media's level of service and that only comes through the involvement of the best people," said Murray.

"I have a tremendous level of respect for Ben (Beazley) and believe he will be a terrific asset as we endeavor to take our range of services to the next level."

In a short amount of time, the news of a Melbourne-based BAM Media office has encouraged a relationship with several new major clients which will be announced in the coming weeks.

Beazley will head up the Melbourne office and will be responsible for the overseeing of BAM Media's new look and feel and will play a role in the development of other BAM subsidiaries including BAM North America and the soon to be launched BAM Tours.

"BAM Media has not only set the pace in Australian media and PR services for sometime, but has also gained a tremendous reputation internationally and especially in the US market," said Beazley.

"I look forward to working with Crusher (Brett Murray) and the rest of the BAM Media team as the company continues to grow on a number of levels.

"The role of General Manager will offer some great challenges as the BAM Group of businesses head into some exciting times and I am looking forward to the challenge."

While Beazley has joined the BAM Media management team full time, he will continue to have a direct link with his former employer Britek Motorsport which has become a client of BAM Media through this process.

Beazley will develop the Britek relationship with the support of the entire BAM Media organisation and will work with team owner Jason Bright and General Manager Chris Jewell on a daily basis in regards to their media and sponsorship servicing needs.

In other developments BAM Senior Client Manager Lee Hanatschek has been appointed as General Manager of BAM Media's Queensland operation, Senior Client Manager Chris Jordan will move from Queensland to Victoria to work with Beazley, Client Manager Amanda Cobb has been appointed as Media Manager for the Gold Coast Indy 300, Patrick Macy will continue to lead BAM's growing graphic art department and David Moore continues to head up the group's administration with a focus on BAM Tours, which will be launched in coming weeks.
