Having served as the CEO for outdoor digital network PowerScreen for five years, Peter went on to start up the OOH media agency, Executor in 2007. In his new role, Peter will report to Sudipto Roy, tenthavenue’s CEO for Developing Markets, who is personally overseeing the partnership and the subsequent integration into the broader Kinetic family.

“The intent is to create an organization which will take the lead in modernizing the OOH industry in Malaysia and you should expect exciting developments around measurement and integration with mobility and social interaction. In the near future, we want to be known for delivering On-the-Move Audiences and not just Out-of-Home media.” added Roy.
