We have appointed Paul Cranwell as Managing Director of the RadioWorks Group.
Cranwell, who joins the business on December 3rd, will play a pivotal role in the growth and development of the RadioWorks Group including Maple Street Creative, Radio Trading Desk and DigitalAudioWorks. He will replace current MD, Emily Turnbull, who is returning to New Zealand in January with her family after completing her contract. However, she will remain with the business in a consultancy role. Cranwell will report directly to Founder and CEO Michael Charnley-Heaton.
Cranwell is joining from leading independent agency The Specialist Works, where he was Head of Client Partnerships in the i-transact media division, charged with developing third party revenue streams for leading retail brand partners such as Ocado, Boohoo and Debenhams. His former roles have been in commercial leadership positions in radio, outdoor and digital with Key 103 – Manchester (now Hits Radio), BRMB – Birmingham (now Free Radio) and, more recently, Exterion Media (now part of Global).
“I am thrilled to be joining RadioWorks who have an exceptional reputation in the industry. With radio set to have another record-breaking year, the rapid growth of digital audio and Global’s recent acquisition of Primesight and Exterion Media, the market’s certainly in an exciting place. I’m thoroughly looking forward to working with the team and our clients to continue to maximise these opportunities and grow RadioWorks as the specialist agency of choice”
“I am delighted to have Paul joining our team. I remember him as an outstanding leader in commercial radio and coupled with his vast experience in outdoor and digital media, I believe he’s the perfect person to lead our growth and deliver the best results for our clients in this rapidly changing media climate.”
