He will lead and develop the Franchise and Asset Development team.

The team has responsibility for managing the company's relationships with key stakeholders such as Westfield, TfL and bus companies.

Brice, who has been with CBS Outdoor UK for nearly seven years, moves from his previous role of head of deals and contracts.

It is understood that he will also continue with his previous responsibilities.

Brice's appointment follows the recent departure of Helena Kavanagh, who left CBS in March to become managing director of the furniture division at JCDecaux. 

Jason Cotterrell, country director at CBS Outdoor UK, said: "It is vitally important that we have the right structure in place in our business to maintain stakeholder relationships and to grow the business as we seek out new opportunities for development.

"Gavin has unrivalled knowledge of the OOH sector and has done a fantastic job in the last two years supporting the franchise team with deals and expansion, notably with Westfield Stratford City and the Olympic Games ."
