Posterscope hires Simon Woodward

Posterscope has appointed Simon Woodward as global commercial director, providing trading and commercial support to the agency’s international offices.

Woodward joins the Dentsu Aegis-owned agency from his position as chief operating officer and general manager of Dentsu Aegis Network across the Middle East and North Africa – a role he held for nearly two years.

In his new role, Woodward will be based in Posterscope’s London offices and will report into global president Stephen Whyte.

“I am delighted that Simon is joining our worldwide leadership team,” Whyte said.

“His talents and extensive international experience will be very valuable in this exciting period of growth and evolution for Posterscope and the Out-of-Home medium.”

Woodward, who will take up his new role from May 1, added: “I am looking forward to contributing to its continued focus on deploying advanced, unique technology and data solutions, ensuring we offer market-leading services to our clients as well as strengthening the relationships with our media partners across the globe”.
