The move was confirmed by APN this morning, announcing the newly formed communications agency Shoebridge Media Group will operate as APN Outdoor’s in-house communications unit three days a week.
Speaking on the move, APN Outdoor CEO and MD James Warburton said: “It will be great to be working with Neil again.”
