By M4G Bureau - January 12, 2023
The UK-based outdoor media infrastructure owning firm is looking to step up its global market presence.
Leading UK-based owner of outdoor media infrastructure Wildstone is preparing for accelerated international expansion with several internal promotions across the business, including the top level management.
Jonathan Chandler (former UK MD) will now become Group Managing Director at Wildstone and will focus on parallel market opportunities as well as taking a more international role in progressing expansion into new territories.
“With our significant growth plans for 2023 and beyond, we had to ensure that we have the right team in place to help deliver our vision. With this in mind, we have made several internal promotions across multiple business functions,” says Jonathan Chandler.
Jill Hebden was promoted to UK Managing Director of Wildstone, responsible for overall management of the company’s acquisition and development objectives in the UK.
Juan Fran Munoz has been promoted to Managing Director of the Redext Group in Spain, acquired by Wildstone in 2022. Munoz will run the day to day business activities of the Group from Wildstone’s Madrid office, including objectives to deliver growth through further digitisation across the company’s Spanish estate.
Ian La Roche is promoted to Head of Delivery, overseeing our digitisation programme. Paula Wrobel, Head of Marketing is directly responsible for the management of the marketing team across Europe. Sarah Bolt has been promoted to Head of Estates and will be responsible for managing our portfolio operations in the UK, enabling Laura Stoker, as Regional MD, to have a broader international focus including the delivery and integration of European strategic opportunities, especially in Spain following the successful acquisition and the onboarding of the Redext Group.
Hannah Schurmann in her role as General Counsel, will be focusing on the Group's European pipeline transactions along with post completion integration and compliance. To allow this strategic focus, Alex Osborne has been promoted to UK Head of Real Estate, responsible for the legal aspects of the ongoing organic growth of Wildstone's portfolio in the United Kingdom.
“Wildstone are very lucky to have the industry’s most talented and most respected personnel employed in the business. With a market-leader in every seat, we’re very well-positioned to further expand in Europe and beyond,” says Chandler.
