Exterion Media, Europe’s largest privately owned Out-of-Home (OOH) company, has today appointed Josko Grljevic to the newly created role of UK and Group Chief Technology Officer. Grljevic will be leading the company’s transformation, as it continues the journey to becoming a Digital Media Company powered by data.

Our company is entering a new phase, as we digitise ourselves both operationally and the way in which the medium is bought and sold. The sector is changing very fast, and we want to continue leading that change, essentially providing best in class solutions for our people and customers. Josko’s appointment validates our ambition, and he has the necessary background and experience to help put technology front and centre within our business.”
Grljevic said: “Joining the Exterion Media Team was too good an opportunity to miss. The business has clearly changed a great deal, and now leads a very exciting and thriving sector. Shaun and the team have a bold ambition for the business, and one that has the potential to redefine the sector.”
It’s hugely exciting, and I cannot wait to get started.”
