Captive Media introduces two new team members

Captive Media welcomed two new faces in November to help ramp up advertising sales as the ever-growing network expands nationally.

James Giddings joins as Head of Brand Sales and Paul Antrobus has come on board as Head of Agency Sales.


James joins us from a strong background in media sales. Having forged his career at Haymarket he went on to hold Sales Director and Business Development Director roles at a number of successful publishing companies, before setting up his own consultancy to drive business strategy and sales for a number of Outdoor Media platforms including The Clear Idea.

Paul Antrobus has 15 years previous experience of working with advertising agencies; primarily as Account Director at Concourse Initiatives (lately bought by JC Decaux), though more recently at Saximo Media where he was Commercial Director. He has a wide range of knowledge of the Outdoor industry and is keen to help Captive Media take their product out into market.

Captive Media has grown from just a handful of UK venues in January to having a fully-saleable advertising network of 60 London screens in June. Since November, Captive Media has been increasing the network size again and will have over 120 screens across the UK’s major cities by Christmas and 200 by Easter next year.

Captive Media CEO, Gordon MacSween, said “It is great to welcome James and Paul to Captive Media as we look to continue our rapid growth into 2015. After successfully closing a funding round, we are now working to increase our network size. James and Paul bring years of fantastic experience to the team and we are excited to have them here. We look forward to working with the advertisers they are sure to bring on board.”
