Grljevic (pictured) joined Talon Outdoor in 2018 as UK chief transformation officer, and has overseen the launches of three data-led technology platforms – Ada, Atlas and Plato – to assist with audience targeting, programmatic buying and measurement across OOH.

Once the three platforms were launched in the UK, Grljevic also led their introduction into the US, Middle East and North Africa, and Asia-Pacific markets.

As part of his new role, Grljevic will continue to grow the remit of technology and data across the business and will report directly to group chief executive officer, Barry Cupples.

Further senior promotions have also been made at Talon Outdoor, including Anant East to the position of group chief technology officer, Sophie Pemberton to group chief strategy officer and Amy Horton to group transformation director.

Cupples said: “During one of the most challenging times in our business when the OOH industry was facing severe setbacks, Josko has been instrumental in driving Talon forward, developing the best proprietary tech the sector now offers and driving real change into how the media is delivered.

“He’s been central to Talon’s transformation and I look forward to seeing him continue this success globally as we drive forward the renaissance of OOH.”
