Our Team

Cennydd Roberts

CEO

I joined 8 Outdoor in October 2015 as CEO. Prior to this I’ve represented several leading outdoor businesses at senior level including Clear Channel, CBS Outdoor (now Exterion), Van Wagner and the outdoor consultancy Wildstone.

Prior to working in outdoor advertising I worked at TSMS, the then ITV sales house, and talkSPORT where I was part of the transformation team from TalkRadio.

Digital out-of-home is a media I’ve been part of from the very beginning, overseeing Clear Channel’s first transformation of TFL’s bus shelter 6 sheet posters to digital in 2011, and leading the sales, marketing and site selection for Clear Channel’s first UK roadside large format digital network in 2008. I was also a member of the early team that began to transform the Underground to digital in 2006.

At 8 Outdoor I am focused on establishing the UK’s number one digital roadside media owner.
