Glenn and James start immediately and report to Digicom’s MD Sales and Marketing, Chris Forrester. Both are experienced in general outdoor sales and in vertical out of home sectors.
- Glenn Brawn’s most recent role was sales director at Inviseo Media, the specialist airline media company, and he occupied the same senior role at specialist medical media company PharmaSite. He previously worked at Clear Channel and Carlton TV in a sales and sponsorship capacity.
- James Thornton has been sales manager at Titan Outdoor, running a sales team selling to specialists, and before that senior account manager selling to agency planners and direct clients. His previous background was in regional press.
Chris Forrester told us “These are talented account managers who know their way around outdoor and who have a proven ability to hit targets and drive money into the medium. Digicom has three excellent media propositions already and we look forward to adding more to the portfolio in the future.”
Digicom’s sales activity ramps up in earnest from September, with the BP Connect network already up and running, and all pre-launch tests complete. Selling in to national brands begins next week.
