Phoenix owner Wold Outdoor welcomes new business development manager

17th Jan

Patrick Hewitt, the former chief operating officer at Waltons Publications in Grimsby, has joined Wold Outdoor, the company behind East Yorkshire’s most viewed digital advertising site.
Alison Johnson, managing director, said: “Hull has a thriving business and digital community and has been named as a major player to secure the UK’s top position as the digital capital of Europe. Digital out-of-home remains the media channel with the most momentum to achieve short-term sales and long-term brand awareness for businesses by combining the power of reach and data. 
“We’ve had an exceptionally successful year, which ended with the Phoenix being booked out for weeks. We’re thrilled that Patrick is joining us at this exciting time. With him Patrick brings a wealth of experience, business contacts and unbounded enthusiasm.” 
According to the latest Route figures the Phoenix provides more than half a million impressions per week. Other sites are already in with planning and will be built in 2020.
