Outdoor advertising specialist CP Media has appointed three new directors as it prepares for its next phase of growth.

Rachel Davies, Ed Armstrong and Richard Eccles join the CP Media board following a 40 per cent increase in group revenues to £6.8m in the 2021 financial year.

CP Media is Yorkshire’s largest and fastest growing outdoor advertising agency with offices in Halifax and Harrogate and more than 40 employees.

The company provides bespoke advertising and sponsorship services that enable UK local authorities and businesses to capitalise on their assets. In 2019, CP Media acquired Eye Airports, the leader in UK regional airport advertising with rights for 19 regional airports.

Rachel Davies heads up Eye Airports, while Ed Armstrong heads up CP Media’s group marketing department and Richard Eccles is the group chief operating officer.

Mike Brennan, CEO at CP Media, said: “Rachel is the most experienced and successful regional airport advertising manager in the UK. Her promotion to the main board will strengthen both the company and the management.

“Ed has been with us for many years and now runs one of the most successful marketing departments in our industry. Richard has done outstanding work for the entire group over the last 10 years and thoroughly deserves this promotion. He has been my successful number two almost since the beginning and we wouldn’t be here without him. He is a vital part of our future growth.”

CP Media was named one of the 50 fastest growing Yorkshire companies by law firm Ward Hadaway and number 78 in the UK in the top founder-led private businesses of 2022, awarded by FEBE Growth 100.
