OPEN are pleased to announce the appointment of Susi Castle, as Head of Marketing.
Susi will bring 6 years of media experience to the team, and will be working across both our Liverpool & London offices.
Susi joined the media industry in 2016, beginning her career at Primesight. Since starting in out-of-home she has worked at some of the industry’s key media owners, including Ocean Outdoor and Global.
Passionate about diversity and inclusion, she is a Bloom member and mentor, and was a 2020 winner of the WACL Talent award. Susi was also the sole recipient of the Patricia Mann Award – for championing change and challenging the status quo to support other women and make a positive impact on the marketing and advertising industry. After a brief stint at a property startup she has returned to the media industry as OPEN’s Head of Marketing.
After meeting Mike Smith, Fiona Ravlic and Jon Stephenson I was impressed by what OPEN Media stands for. The team’s strategic focus on people, place and planet is exactly where I see our industry needing to go.
I will be hitting the ground running, building on the great success OPEN Media has had in recent years. The business grew financially by 105% in 2021, after one of the toughest periods for out-of-home, and I’m confident that this is a company that really is changing outdoor. I look forward to working across the industry to grow our whole sector’s share of media budgets.
