Patrick Hewitt joins digital outdoor media owner Wold Outdoor as Business Development Manager. Wold Outdoor is the owner of The Phoenix in Hull, East Yorkshire's most viewed digital advertising site.
Alison Johnson, Managing Director Wold Outdoor, says “Hull has a thriving business and digital community and has been named as a major player to secure the UK’s top position as the digital capital of Europe. Digital out-of-home remains the media channel with the most momentum to achieve short-term sales and long-term brand awareness for businesses by combining the power of reach and data.
We’ve had an exceptionally successful year which ended with the Phoenix being booked out for weeks. We’re thrilled that Patrick is joining us at this exciting time. With him Patrick brings a wealth of experience, business contacts and unbounded enthusiasm.”
According to the latest Route figures The Phoenix provides more than half a million impressions per week. Other sites are already in with planning and will be built in 2020.
Before joining Wold Outdoor, Patrick Hewitt was COO at Waltons Publications in Grimsby.
