Independent OOH agency Talon has announced changes to its management structure with founders and managing directors Frank Bryant and James Copley assuming new responsibilities.

“Elevating the roles of Frank and James gives us the best chance to meet the challenges that we know lay ahead," said Cupples.

"They allow us to focus senior management time on leading and innovating change in OOH, whilst embracing the realities it brings to the business in light of the increasingly fluid media industry. Talon has enjoyed real success to date through its growth mindset and proactive relationship with clients and agencies.”

Further changes to the senior team at Talon include Charlie Goldring’s promotion to chief commercial officer.
