GMG Radio’s former Chief Executive Stuart Taylor has joined worldwide media planning company Kinetic as UK CEO.
Stuart left GMG Radio on the day Global Radio announced their takeover of the company last summer – having been at GMG Plc since 1988.
He starts his new role on Monday 21st January, based at Kinetic Worldwide’s new London headquarters in Bloomsbury and will report to Andy Jonesco, CEO EMEA.
Stuart was replaced at GMG Radio with former Global Radio MD for the Regions Mark Lee.
Speaking of his appointment, Stuart Taylor said: “It’s a time of great innovation in the Out of Home sector, with exciting solutions for those brands that recognise the growing role it has to play as connected devices drive the convergence of content, transactions and communication. Kinetic, with its extended network of partners within tenthavenue, is leading the insight and understanding of audiences on the move, so to have the opportunity to lead the UK team at this particular time is too good an opportunity to miss.”
Andy Jonesco, CEO EMEA, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to attract somebody of Stuart’s calibre. He brings a wealth of high quality experience gained during a 25 year career across both national and local media. His proven track record and expertise will provide a fresh perspective on our sector and will build further on the work to date to ensure that Kinetic – as market leader – remains best placed to provide best in class solutions to both clients and partners in this rapidly changing and evolving market.”
