16 July 2013, Tuesday – ASEAN’s No.1 Network of Automotive Portals, iCar Asia, has appointed Nik Weber as General Manager of its new Media business across Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.
iCar Asia’s Media business consists of display sales (online, print & mobile) as well as editorial and content; the largest automotive specialist content team in the region. The Media business will cover all of iCar Asia’s brands including Carlist.my, LiveLifeDrive.com & EVO magazine in Malaysia; Thaicar.com & Autospinn.com in Thailand; and Mobil123.com in Indonesia.
Prior to the appointment, Nik successfully managed iCar Asia’s Indonesian business, Mobil123.com, as the General Manager of Indonesia. His leadership led to an impressive growth of over 246%* in web traffic and more than 439% in automotive listings in just the short space of 9 months. Prior to joining iCar Asia in August 2012, Nik was with Fairfax Media in Australia, where he spent six years in various print and digital sales and strategy roles. He holds a degree in Media Communications from the University of New South Wales, Australia.
In his new role, Nik will be based in Malaysia and will be focused on developing iCar Asia to become ASEAN’s leading source of automotive content and partnering with clients to provide truly integrated solutions and engagement with ASEAN’s largest regional automotive Media assets.
“We believe in growing our business through talent. Already an asset to the group, I welcome Nik to his new role. Within a span of a few months, Nik has demonstrated exceptional business development capability that has shown through iCar Asia’s success in Indonesia. Nik’s track record will be invaluable for the growth of the Media business and I am confident that with this new regional role, Nik will build the Media business to become the ‘go to source’ for ASEAN automotive content & the number 1 choice for advertisers,” said CEO of iCar Asia, Damon Rielly.
