Digital outdoor media company QMS Media has announced changes to the structure of the group’s senior executive team, with the promotion of two key executives Wayne Chapman and Mike Porter.
Current QMS New Zealand chief executive Wayne Chapman will expand his role to become group chief of QMS New Zealand and assume oversight of all QMS’ New Zealand businesses, including Digital Commons, QMS Sport and Omnigraphics.

Wayne’s expanded remit sees Mike Porter, current chief operating officer of QMS New Zealand, promoted to chief executive of the media business.
With more than 12 years’ experience in outdoor advertising, QMS Media says Mike will be instrumental in driving the media business through substantial growth and transformational change, including the continual advancement of QMS New Zealand’s innovation suite, comprising of Datalab 2.0 and recent automated trading initiatives.
Nettlefold said he is excited about the future direction of the QMS group of businesses in New Zealand.
“These executive changes are a reflection of the integral role that both Wayne and Mike have played in the establishment and direction of QMS in this market, since the acquisition of iSite. I look forward to the many exciting growth opportunities that lie ahead for the QMS Media Group both locally in New Zealand as well as internationally.”
