Ooh Media group revenue director Phil Eastwood exits as part of wider restructure

Out-of-home media player Ooh Media has announced a series of senior leadership changes, with group revenue director ANZ Phil Eastwood stepping down after six years with the business. 

Eastwood plans to spend more time with his family after years of commuting to Sydney from Brisbane each week in addition to regular domestic and New Zealand travel.

His role has been replaced with the newly-created position of national revenue director for Australia, which will be filled by Sean Rigby. The role will sit under national sales director Tim Murphy, who will now report directly into Ooh’s chief customer officer, David Scribner.

The state sales directors will also report into Murphy. The sales structure will shift to a state-based model, with each area’s director holding accountability for agency and direct sales in their state.

In the New Zealand market, the team will continue to be led by general manager Nick Vile, with sales director Ben Gibbs taking full responsibility for New Zealand revenue and trading negotiations.

The structural changes come as the company progresses with the integration of Commute by Ooh, the new branding for what was previously Adshel.

Ooh CEO Brendon Cook thanked Eastwood for the dedication and energy he had put into his six year tenure.

“Being away from family most weeks is a hard thing to do and I would like to personally thank Phil,” said Cook. “He is incredibly well respected in the industry and the business, and his drive and relationships have been a large contributor to our sales success over that time, including 26% increase in revenue in 2018.”

Eastwood added: “The last six years has been a great learning curve and I am immensely proud of the part I have played in setting the business up for long term growth and success’.”
