LONDON - JCDecaux has split its sales division, dividing operations into trading and agency planning as part of an effort to to attract more advertisers to outdoor advertising.
Spencer Berwin, group sales director at JCDecaux, said that the restructure was the first of a series of changes designed to attract more advertisers to use outdoor more often.
The agency planning division will build relationships with agencies and provide advice on the structure of outdoor campaigns and the role of outdoor within a media schedule.
The role of director of agency planning has been given to current associate director David Lambert, who has previously worked at BBJ and Manning Gottlieb OMD.
Direct relationships with advertisers will be handled by newly appointed director of client planning Yoko de Souza, who was previously associate sales director.
The trading division will be headed by Daemon Brown, who has been promoted from associate director. The division's focus is on long-term deals and maximising the value of the company's inventory.
The two divisions will be overseen by Jamie Lindsay, director of national sales.
Berwin said that the aim is to drive outdoor's share of the advertising market above 10%. According to the Outdoor Advertising Association the medium's share in 2004 was 9.26%.
