Previously chief of the UK and Ireland business, Justin brings with him almost 20 years’ experience working at Clear Channel, as well as insight as the chairman of outdoor advertising trade association Outsmart.

Premium fashion resale service Cudoni has appointed Matt Cooper as chairman of the board. The former principal managing director of Capital One bank formally joins the team to support brand growth at a time when the secondary fashion market is booming fuelled by consumer concerns for sustainability. Matt first became involved with Cudoni in line with his initial five-figure investment made following the business’ relaunch in May 2017. The new formalised partnership has since seen a total six-figure investment and will involve Matt working closely alongside Cudoni chief executive and founder James Harford-Tyrer offering guidance and expertise to steer the business into the next phase. Matt’s other roles involve work as a non-executive chairman and director for Octopus Investments, IGF Group and Tandem Bank.
