Ooh Media appoints public policy expert Siobhan Marren as director of government relations

Outdoor provider Ooh Media is upping its public policy expertise with the appointment of expert Dr Siobhan Marren into the role of director of government relations.

Marren joins from the Outdoor Media Association (OMA) where she guided the industry’s response on key advocacy issues including road safety regulations and content restrictions.

She has 20 years of national and international experience across policy, advocacy, education and campaigning, and has worked with both state and federal campaigns on equitable health outcomes, civil liberties and environmental issues.

Ooh Media CEO Brendon Cook said the team was delighted to have Marren onboard given the complex layout of the industry.

“She is a proven advocate who has a real grasp of commercial, legal and legislative matters, and will deepen our capabilities in this vital area,” he said.

Marren said: “Ooh Media is an industry leader operating in a rapidly-changing environment.

“The advertising business has many opportunities, but also many responsibilities, and I’m looking forward to working with all our stakeholders to help promote the interests of both the company and the industry as a whole.”

Two weeks ago, rival JC Decaux appointed Tess Phillips as head of government relations.
