A lot has changed over 35 years.

One thing that hasn’t is our unwavering focus on delivering exceptional results for our clients.

Our story

As one of Australia’s most experienced media buyers, our knowledge of the media industry is second-to-none. We get results that matter. Our success is powered by the relationships we’ve built over the years – first and foremost with our clients, but also with our many media partners.

Way back in 1986, founder Rod Merifield had a radical vision of a media buying agency that put clients first. He’d seen too many clients get burned, and knew there had to be a better way. He wanted to reengineer the media buying experience based around old-fashioned values such as honesty, transparency and trust.

Today, Rockit comprises a tight-knit team of experienced professionals that have the skills, relationships and drive to help you navigate the intricate world of media buying.

While Rockit has continually evolved to reflect the dramatically different media landscape of today, we’ve kept a laser focus on our mission: to deliver exceptional results for clients while living the values that are the foundation of our success.

Why trust Rockit?

  • 35 years young and going strong
  • Committed to getting results that matter to you
  • We care for our clients, and operate with honesty and transparency at all times
  • Reliable, responsive and proactive
  • A focus on building deep relationships with clients and media partners
  • We think outside the square to deliver solutions that work


We’re not ashamed to say we’re a bit old-school when it comes to doing business.

We genuinely care about our clients.
Our clients are at the forefront of everything we do. Getting to know you is not just an enjoyable part of our job; it’s critical in ensuring we truly understand your needs and goals. Only then can we develop and execute effective media strategies that propel your business forward.

Results that matter.
We are 100% focused on delivering outcomes that help you achieve your organisational goals. Our strict ‘no-fluff’ process ensures we generate results that matter. If you’re happy with vanity metrics, look elsewhere.

Our success rests in your success.
As our business is built on referrals, It’s vital we keep wowing our clients, over and over again. Exceeding your expectations while treating you with respect is in our DNA. Making you look great makes us look great.

Relationships are the bedrock of our business.
While methods and mediums have changed over the years, the relationships we cultivate with clients, and with our array of key media contacts, have never been more important.

We value honesty, transparency and reliability.
Today’s media landscape can get rocky. We believe it’s never been more important to live by the principles that have been instrumental to our longevity: a commitment to honest interactions at all times; being open and transparent about what we do and why; delivering on our promises; and always being there when you need us.


For over 35 years, we’ve partnered with clients to deliver tangible results that help them achieve their goals.

Leadership Team

Some media buyers are more interested in spin and subterfuge;
we pride ourselves on honesty, transparency and reliability.
