Cardmaster, which makes credit-card sized ads aimed at the business

market, is looking for UK sales people to relocate to Asia.



The company, which displays cards in first- and business-class airport

lounges, is to open an office in Singapore in March and one in Hong Kong

in May. There are also plans to set up in Kuala Lumpur.



Sales manager Stephen Cleeve, who heads the company’s six-strong UK

sales unit, is sending sales executive Patrick Mauchant to Singapore to

front the team. Mauchant will recruit four sales executives, two from

the UK and two from the local area. The same number will be recruited

for the company’s two other Asian offices.



Cardmaster’s advertisers include Psion, Phillips and Barclaycard and

revenue for 2000 is expected to exceed pounds 10 million.



Managing director Darren Munn said: ’Our problem has been satisfying

demand. For instance, space at Gatwick is sold out and there’s a waiting

list of at least 12 months. We had no option but to expand. Asia is

already 75 per cent sold out with advanced bookings before its launch.’
