Bruce Fink, executive chairman of Executive Channel International Pty Ltd (ECI) has announced a buy-out of its ECNlive UK and European operations and a significant restructure, with the now wholly owned ECI network poised for strong global expansion.
According to Mr Fink, ECNlive with operations in London, Paris and Amsterdam will operate alongside Executive Channel Australia as part of a cohesive global business in the office media arena. “Following completion of the purchase, the new global company is primed for an aggressive expansion of the ECNlive and Executive Channel networks,” Mr Fink said. As part of the restructure, Charles Parry-Okeden, one of the company’s three founding partners, has been appointed global CEO. ECNlive London has also appointed Stephen Gale as managing director.
Charles Parry-Okeden said, “This is an exciting time for Executive Channel. It’s always been our intention that the UK, European and Australian networks operate as part of a global business.” Executive Channel Australia has also undergone a significant restructure. Justin Kingston, with his extensive property management experience, has been promoted to chief operating officer and is responsible for all non sales related functions. Paul McBeth has been elevated to strategic sales and marketing director, and is responsible for driving national revenue. McBeth had been consulting to Executive Channel and has worked in senior marketing and strategy roles for media owners and media/advertising agencies. Tim Elder will head sales in New South Wales as well as Queensland as sales director and Guy Taffs appointed sales director of boutique markets. “ECI is now one of the biggest global players in office media. Our new cohesive global business focus, supported by our newly appointed talented teams here and in Europe, makes us a formidable force as we focus on our five year plan and growth,” Mr Parry-Okeden said.
