CBS Outdoor has revealed a restructured UK management team following the departure of UK managing director of sales and marketing Tim Bleakley and UK financial director Deborah Embley.

Bleakley announced earlier today that he is to leave the company and it has now emerged that Embley is also to leave.

International CEO Antonio Alonso will take over the duties of running the UK business while the company searches for a permanent UK managing director.

The International HR director Richard Eastmond and international chief finance officer Nick Thomas have expanded their remit to include the UK.

CBS Outdoor International CEO Antonio Alonso says: ‘The UK is a key market for CBS Outdoor International. The changes we are implementing will evolve the reputation and client experience of our business as a world-class out-of-home media brand known for our assets, attractive advertiser audiences and superior service to customers.’
