Airport Media Ltd Takeover Gatwick Airport's Media Sales

Airport Media and Eye Airports are pleased to announce they have reached a collaborative agreement that will see Airport Media take over the running and full operations of Gatwick Airport’ Media Sales, with immediate effect. This agreement will facilitate the entire Eye Airports London team, including Sales Director, Ged Weston and Operations & Development Director, Mark James, transferring over to Airport Media, to be led once again by Sarah Parkes.  Sarah will remain involved with DigiCom OOH and will hold a dual Managing Director role across both companies.  Whilst the two companies will share resource the sales teams will be separate in order to maintain a ‘pure play focus’ for both brands.
This development comes straight after Airport Media’s recent appointment by Manchester Airport Group, to handle and operate their four Airports; Manchester; Stansted; East Midlands and; Bournemouth. All bookings at these facilities became Airport Media’s responsibility as of October 1st.
Airport Media was set up by Tom Goddard, Chairman of Ocean Outdoor and DigiCom OOH, as a new sales and management operation.  Bringing a fresh and innovative approach, Airport Media will offer a digital-centric premium media service, for major airports in the UK.
Tom Goddard, Chairman of Airport Media, said:
“The early transfer of Gatwick Airport will enable Airport Media to fast track the launch of its exciting new offering. We are delighted to welcome the whole team on board under Sarah’s leadership. Sarah brings her expertise and knowledge of the airport environment underpinning Airport Media’s commitment to creating a premium, digital-centric media offering.”
Andrew Walker, CEO of Eye Airports commented about the transition:
“I am proud of the impact that Eye Airports has made on the UK airport advertising industry, and pleased the early transfer of Gatwick’s Media Sales to Airport Media will allow the team to build on what we have already achieved. This will allow Eye Airports to focus on its historical specialty – developing the airport advertising opportunities at most of the UK regional airports.”
