Chris Forrester to leave Amscreen

Amscreen, the UK’s largest digital out of home media owner, has today announced that Chris Forrester, European MD Sales & Marketing, is to leave the company in June.

Forrester, who has been with Amscreen for three years, has worked closely with CEO Simon Sugar and the sales and marketing teams and has been instrumental in the expansion of the forecourt and convenience networks and recruiting a range of blue-chip advertisers.

Simon Sugar said, “Chris has been a valuable asset in setting up and developing Amscreen’s sales and marketing departments. I am very grateful for all of his hard work and wish him the very best in his future career. We part on the best of terms and I’d like to thank him for his contribution to Amscreen’s success. We look forward to finding a replacement to build upon the great results delivered by Chris and help take us to the next level both domestically and internationally”.

In just four years, Amscreen has become the UK’s largest Digital Out of Home media company and broadcasts to an audience of over 25 million a week. They have recently also expanded into Europe, installing screens in forecourts across the continent.
