Media Displays, the company responsible for digital marketing display screens throughout the UK, has announced two strategic appointments to its senior team.
Christopher Armitage has joined the business as operations director, while Amanda Hetherington has been promoted to finance manager.
With previous experience in the logistics sector, Christopher will be responsible for the fleet of digital display vehicles, along with all colleagues. He will also manage operational efficiencies, projects and the in-house fabrication team.
In addition, he will have a focus on research and development of new innovations within the sector.
Having worked for the business for five years, Amanda will take on further responsibility thanks to her promotion, managing all sales invoicing, credit control, purchase ledger, bank reconciliation and management accounts.
Managing director of Media Displays, Ian Taylor, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Christopher and Amanda for all of their hard work. Already they are both having a really positive impact on the business.
“We are expanding ahead of forecast and that means that we need a trusted senior team in place that can take on more responsibility. I know that I have this with these appointments. I’m looking forward to building the business with colleagues that show as much commitment as I do myself.”
Christopher said: “Working in the events industry, no two days are ever the same, which keeps things really exciting. There’s no doubt that this role is a new challenge for me, but I am very much looking forward to using my skills to help to build the business.
“It’s been a busy time and we can only see this continuing as more people hear about the vans and what more we have to offer.”
Amanda said: “I have worked for Media Displays for more than five years. Unlike so many businesses that are just starting to see the value in flexible working, I am pleased that I have had this option from day one.
“Knowing that I can progress my career with a company that truly values its colleagues is really important to me.”
