CBS Outdoor UK today announces that Neil Micklethwaite is to join the company as Franchise Director, following an expansion of the company’s franchise and asset division. He joins from his previous role as Customer Service & Commercial Director at FGW, Firstgroup plc, where he was responsible for delivering £700 million worth of revenue.
In his new role, Micklethwaite will be tasked with building and maintaining strong relationships with bus and national rail partners in addition to developing value added services for partners and the business.
Micklethwaite takes over from Jason Cotterrell, who has been promoted to Director of Franchise & Asset Strategy. Jason will now lead the Franchise team with a particular focus on shaping future franchise partner strategy and the diversification of the asset and product portfolio. This move demonstrates the company’s emphasis on franchise development and the new structure indicates that this is a growth area for CBS Outdoor UK.
Mike Moran, CBS Outdoor UK Managing Director, comments:
“Neil has worked in senior positions in commercial, customer and financial environments for some time and has excellent business acumen. He will be a great asset to CBS Outdoor UK and will bring with him a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Jason’s promotion to Director, Franchise and Asset Strategy, will ensure that CBS Outdoor UK is well prepared for developing and expanding this business division in the future.”
Neil Micklethwaite added:
“It’s an exciting time to come into this industry. CBS Outdoor UK is a market leader at the vanguard of outdoor advertising solutions and I’m looking forward to working with partners to deliver innovative solutions and great results.”
Micklethwaite joins CBS Outdoor on 14 October.
