It is often said that it’s not what you know, but who… and in the case of former Senior Account Manager, Tony Mee, a knowledge of the who’s who of the automotive industry was a given.
It’s why Tony reached out to veteran motoring journalist, Matt Brogan, when sourcing a Head of Content for DBC2 – a new role the business created to evolve its written and video content for a growing roll call of automotive clientele.
Matt comes to DBC2 with over 13 years’ experience as an automotive journalist. Matt was previously the Road Test Editor at Carsales.com Ltd and caradvice.com.au where he amassed over 1,100 vehicle reviews and produced countless news and advice articles, videos, and other online and social media content.
After more than a decade travelling the world reviewing cars, Matt decided the move to automotive marketing would provide an interesting change of pace.
He brings not only a vast knowledge of the global automotive market to the team, but also his background in aircraft maintenance engineering (having worked at both Ansett Australia and Qantas Airways), heavy vehicle and motorcycle mechanical fitting, and a love of muscle cars and motorsport.
Matt also competes in the MX-5 Sprint Championship and has had class wins in the series, as well as podium finishes at the Bathurst Challenge, Australian Tarmac Rally Championship, and the grueling Australasian Safari.
He also runs a successful side business providing road tours and track days for driving enthusiasts and restores vintage tractors from his suburban garage when he gets time away from the keyboard.
“It’s terrific walking into an environment where the team has such deep and diverse experience in the automotive arena,” said Matt.
“Dale and Mitch have their finger on the pulse of the automotive aftermarket to a point where decisions and forecasting of future marketing trends seem entirely intuitive.
“The dedication and enthusiasm the team shows for the needs of their clients was another attraction in accepting the role. It’s rare to find a business so committed to the relationships they have with their clients, and I think that’s something that really sets DBC2 apart from its contemporaries.”
Matt joined the DBC2 team in April.
