OMANZ appoints a General Manager

The Outdoor Media Association of New Zealand (OMANZ) is pleased to announce the appointment of Adam McGregor as General Manager.   Adam’s arrival coincides with the departure of Jo Davenport, who after 3-years with the organisation has decided to pursue other interests.

OMANZ Chair, Wayne Chapman commented, “Jo leaves with our best wishes and thanks for her valuable stewardship during a volatile period for the sector. Looking forward, we are delighted to have secured the services of someone of Adam’s calibre to lead the OOH industry towards our over arching objective of 5% of total NZ advertising spend.”

Adam has a strong background in Out-of-Home advertising, with almost 20 years experience, both internationally and in the local market.   “I’m looking forward to the opportunity ahead.  I firmly believe in the benefits OOH provides advertisers in terms of building their brands and creating impact.  The media market has never been more fragmented than it is currently, yet OOH remains relevant, capturing people on the move.  This year is looking very positive for the industry as advertising spend increases and operators are reporting sold bookings well into the year ahead.”

Adam’s primary focus areas will be on continuing to promote the benefits of Out-of-Home advertising, representing the industry in meaningful dialogue with key stakeholders, and further developing the OOH investment proposition.
