Former FCB Media head of client services Simon Teagle has entered the OOH industry as the general manager of Go Media.
The appointment is the next step in Teagle's 25-year career at media agencies, having worked at DDB, Starcom and more recently FCB Media where he was responsible for service delivery, the media team and financial performance.
During those years, his work has earned him local and global recognition, including a Gold Lion at the first Cannes Media Awards. A career highlight though was winning the Media Agency of the Year award with FCB Media for the last two years running.
After hanging up his service hat and departing the agency at the end of last year, StopPress spoke to him about his time in the industry and where he saw it going in the future.
“It’s exciting to have been part of it, especially in the last 10, and more so in the last five years. The rate of change has accelerated and that’s exciting, and challenges of what works and how do you measure it,” he says.
