Posterscope and Open Outdoor Formalise Relationship through Acquisition


Posterscope, the world’s leading Out-of-Home Communications agency, today announces the formalisation of its relationship with Open Outdoor, the Out-of-Home media specialists, through the acquisition of the remaining shares it does not already own. 

Founded in 2002 and led by Managing Director Andrew Kelly, Open Outdoor specialises in handling the outdoor business for independent and regional agencies and prides itself on providing the highest levels of customer service, support and innovative ideas. Operating in differing parts of the Out-of-Home market, Posterscope and Open Outdoor have had an existing working relationship since its inception and will continue to operate separately post acquisition.

Glen Wilson, Managing Director of Posterscope said “I've greatly enjoyed working with Andrew, and his team, over a number of years and am impressed with their high level of service to their agencies and clients. Now is the right time for both parties to consolidate whilst operating independently.” 

Andrew Kelly, Managing Director of Open Outdoor said “We’re looking forward to taking the relationship between Open Outdoor and Posterscope to the next level. We see this as a natural evolution of an already successful partnership that will mean our clients will be able to have it all – an industry-beating, tailored service supported by the best tools and network in the business”.
