Outdoor Connection appoints new board members

Cartoon Network UK has appointed a former director of programmes at Rapture TV as its new UK chief. Richard Kilgarriff joins the company as channel manager and vice-president of the network in the UK.

Outdoor media specialist Outdoor Connection has promoted two new members of staff to its board.

Lisa Lyte and Nick Bell, former planning directors at the company, have been awarded full board status.

Former planning manager Adrian Skelton has also been promoted to planning director and Clare Passfiled has moved from planning executive to planning manager.

The promotions come after Outdoor Connection launched a new unit for geographically specific outdoor clients and a unit to develop the digital outdoor sector.

Outdoor Connection joint managing director David Payne said: "These promotions are reward for excellence throughout a challenging year and are part of our next development phase."
