Chief Executive Officer - Dave Cox
Dave Cox started dreaming of a radio career at the tender age of three, playing with a toy microphone. His first job in radio was in 1983 doing mid-dawns at 2CA in Canberra while still at high school. In his spare time he was a nightclub DJ.
Over 15 years he worked in stations in Canberra, Lismore, Newcastle, Sydney and Adelaide. He's held several positions from cart-boy to announcing, including Music Director, Assistant Program Director, Copywriter, and Production.
In 1995, Dave won a national competition run by Austereo designed to foster new technology ideas among the staff. He then became Operations Manager for the Triple M radio network as the company implemented his ideas for a satellite network system.
Dave also worked as Operations Manager at Sky Radio and Sky Digital Courier throughout the design, development and installation stages of both the "SkyLink" satellite switching and "Sky Digital Courier" commercial delivery systems.
Dave founded DBM Systems, the company behind AudioNET, in 1997.
At AudioNET, Dave's job is to keep coming up with new ideas, support the staff and keep clients happy.
At home, Dave relaxes by cooking and consuming favourite foods and wines. He is a tragic Carlton AFL fan.
Marketing Director - Verity Webb
Verity's career in radio spanned 13 years (unlucky for some) from cadet journalist at radio 5AD in Adelaide to ABC Radio Sydney News Editor with several stops in newsrooms in between. Her PR career included Media Relations for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia and national communications manager at KPMG Australia. Her proudest moment was being allowed to read news on air at 5AD and telling her parents she was being paid to talk!
Extraordinary career events include working through the Newcastle earthquake and covering the national Papal Tour of Australia in 1986.
At AudioNET, Verity's jobs are mainly related to PR and gift-giving.
At home, Verity is very crafty. She relaxes by eating Dave's cooking and drinking the wine collection.
Software Architect - Vaughan Roberts
Vaughan started writing computer games for fun while still at primary school. He majored in computer science at university and then started building websites for various companies including a magazine publisher and a couple of advertising companies.
His second most intriguing job was building a website to map airport flight paths in the US, so residents could keep track of the likely noise impact from aircraft.
His most intriguing job is keeping the contacts up to date on the AudioNET website. (Just kidding.)
At home Vaughan has a serious collection of comedy DVDs. He is uncontactable during cricket season.
Systems & Governance Lead and Data Analyst - Paul Geer
Paul started life in Tasmania – but moved to Victoria to complete his Surveying degree.
He has forged a highly successful career as a business intelligence analyst specialising in electricity distribution networks and fast-moving consumer goods.
Paul has a passion for logic and loves to tackle complex business and data related problems. Relishing a fresh challenge Paul joined the AudioNET team to help manage the tsunami of data coming our way.
With Paul onboard, we’re all very happy to be learning new and better ways to do things in the business and for our clients.
In his spare time, nothing pleases Paul more than hanging out with friends, having an expertly made martini and tackling a cryptic crossword, usually all at once.
AirCheck Account Manager – Emma Trevillian
Emma grew up in country Victoria riding horses and surfing the ocean.
A surprising left-turn occurred for Emma after completing an apprenticeship in hospitality: she began working at a recording studio and discovered her flair for production.
This led to a career as a senior producer at Rowland Productions and then into the Advertising Agency world, before leaving the industry to raise two boys.
Many of the qualities that helped Emma thrive as a senior producer translate into her work at AudioNET.
She has a great eye for detail, so nothing escapes her while she audits radio campaigns. She combines this with excellent people skills.
At home Emma raises her sons and takes an adventurous approach to life: she enjoys cycling, dancing, cooking feasts, and is studying a degree in philosophy on the side.
AirCheck Account Manager – Cath Palin
Cath’s originally a Queenslander, who favours sailing over surfing.
After starting her career in media, Cath moved into direct marketing while working in the UK, finding time for Post Grad studies between European jaunts.
She married a POM and discovered the craziness of international relocations with increasing numbers of children before settling in Melbourne. Travel is still one of her true loves.
Planning/buying, copywriting and campaign management skills acquired in previous careers enhance Cath’s work at AudioNET. Her attention to detail is equally good with spreadsheets, sentences or schedules which is of huge benefit to her colleagues as well as her clients.
A busy home-life includes one husband, three children and a dog – with gym and book club providing that essential ‘me time’.
Office Manager & AudioNET Support – Katrina Hampson
Katrina grew up in Williamstown, Melbourne.
Her all-rounder skills for organising staff, clients and workplaces began in Administration with Film Victoria. She shifted her love of film to advertising and worked as in-house Producer at SMR Productions overseeing the production of high turnover retail TVC’s Radio & Corporate Videos.
Katrina is highly adept at managing competing priorities. From dispatching material to radio networks, supporting and managing the auditing team’s workflow to providing technical support on our web sites all with a focus on delivering positive outcomes for our clients.
At home, Katrina raises two children, loves camping, and in quieter times returns to the cinematic experience
