Talon Outdoor, the UK’s leading independent Out of Home specialist handling Omnicom and also a number of independent agencies, has created two new senior roles.
Luke Willbourn and Amy Horton have both been promoted to chief client officer, responsible for two strands of Talon’s business. Willbourn will manage all the Omnicom agency business, while Horton takes charge of agencies and clients across Havas, Goodstuff and the full range of independent agencies. Both will report into managing director James Copley.
Willbourn has been promoted from his current group business director role managing the OMD UK and PHD business. He has been at Talon for over four years and has more than 16 years’ experience in Out of Home, including roles at Kinetic, Posterscope and CBS Outdoor (now Exterion Media.)
Horton joined Talon in 2017, having previously worked at Kinetic, CBS Outdoor, EMAP, MediaVest and the Radio Advertising Bureau. She is promoted from her position as head of business development.
MD Copley says: “I am delighted to promote Amy and Luke to chief client officers reflecting the significant contributions both have made towards driving our success to date. The people at Talon are our best asset and as we continue to grow so does our investment in our talent.
“Our business is transforming; these promotions and this new structure will ensure that we continue to execute the most effective campaigns for our clients capitalising on our automation technology, Plato, and our data management platform.”
