Pearl & Dean restructures sales team

LONDON - The Scottish Media Group-owned cinema sales house Pearl & Dean has restructured its sales department.

Catherine Ware, formerly account director, has been promoted to the newly created role of planning director with responsibility for establishing greater links with planning, creative and below-the-line agencies. Ware will also head up SMG's integrated cinema and poster offering with the Out of Home division.

Craig Harris, currently national and regional sales director, has added client sales to his remit, while Clare Turner, formerly account director, has been made agency sales director with responsibility for running the London agency sales team.

Howard Warren, managing director of Pearl & Dean, said: "The huge growth in cinema advertising -- combined with Pearl & Dean's 22% increase in admissions market share since the beginning of 2001 -- has helped us establish a strong platform to move our business forward in 2003."
