Aviator, the International transport media specialist business operated by out-of-home agency Kinetic has appointed Robin Hall as Commercial Director of it’s EMEA business. Working from Aviator’s EMEA HQ in London, Hall will report directly to Jonathan Goldsmid-Whyte, CEO of Aviator globally.
Hall joins from Cheil Communications, part-owned by Samsung, where for the past two years he has run their European Out-of-home business. Previously, Hall ran the International Vodafone airport account.
The move coincides with a strategic management restructure which sees Irene Revilla, currently Commercial Director of Aviator in EMEA, move to Singapore to take up the role of Managing Director for the Asia Pacific region, a key area of focus for Aviator’s business.
In Europe Hall will work in tandem with Sally Emms, Aviator’s existing EMEA Managing Director to further cement Aviator’s Market leading position in a region where Aviator handles as much as 35% of all airport media spend. Emms & Hall will additionally be tasked with growing the European business through the implementation of an aggressive new business strategy and the ongoing development of Aviator’s proprietary airport planning, buying and client servicing tools & systems.
Jonathan Goldsmid-Whyte commented: “As the only global airport media specialist in a market now valued at over a billion dollars per annum, bringing Robin into our European business and appointing Irene to manage Asia-Pacific underlines Aviator’s ongoing commitment to this sector across the world. Both are highly talented and experienced media professionals and this will give our clients access to an increased expert resource across the world.
As the number of people taking to the skies continues to grow at an incredible rate, airport media has become an unrivalled platform for clients looking to engage with an increasingly elusive audience of senior business decision makers and high net worth individuals in a positive, captive and truly international environment.
