Outdoor advertising company Adshel has announced a restructure which sees chief finance officer Chris Hunt move to an operations role, although it has still not appointed a new sales lead.

Under the change Hunt will take the role of chief operations officer taking on responsibility for Adshel’s business operations, revenue and yield management and a newly created transformation office, along with his existing finance and IT leadership.

As part of the restructure chief marketing officer Nicole McInnes also adds responsibility for Adshel’s experiential product teams to her existing remit of marketing, strategy and communications.

“These changes are focused on driving better results for the business and all of the functions affected will benefit from being even more distinct, dedicated and focused,” said Rob Atkinson CEO of Adshel. 

The changes also see Todd August made head of digital for Adshel, who has been working in a contract capacity as digital lead for the recent launch of Adshel’s Sydney Trains digital display network, depart the company at the conclusion of his contract.

Atkinson added: “I would like to congratulate both Chris and Nicole on their hard work in creating a strong and cohesive team to lead us into the future. At the same time I would like to thank Todd for all his efforts in helping us realize the launch of Australia’s largest scalable digital advertising network.”

The restructure follows the recent appointment Mike Tyquin to the position of chief commercial officer and comes as the company searches for a new sales director following the departure of Matt Newcomb last month.

All changes are effective immediately.
