Independent OOH agency Talon has announced a shake-up of its management structure.

Founders Frank Bryant (above right) and James Copley will take on new responsibilities, becoming Group COO and UK CEO respectively. Both report into Talon Group CEO Barry Cupples.

The agency said the moves are designed to ensure it is "equipped for further growth in a fast-moving OOH sector".

Cupples said: “Elevating the roles of Frank and James gives us the best chance to meet the challenges that we know lay ahead.

"They allow us to focus senior management time on leading and innovating change in OOH, whilst embracing the realities it brings to the business in light of the increasingly fluid media industry. Talon has enjoyed real success to date through its growth mindset and proactive relationship with clients and agencies.”

Charlie Goldring has also been promoted to Chief Commercial Officer.

Talon has offices in London, Manchester, New York and San Diego, plus several other US cities. It works with several of the UK’s leading advertising brands through Omnicom Media Group UK agencies.
