Rachel Davies will continue as Managing Director of Eye Airports and joins the CP Media management team. Eye Airports will operate as a separate subsidiary of CP Media but will benefit from CP’s marketing and financial resources.

Becoming part of CP Media with its expertise, energy, enthusiasm and experience will give the Eye team the tools to take our unique, targeted media opportunities to an even wider audience.”

“Eye Airports’ growing digital offering also now means that these passengers can immediately purchase a product or service. Digital advertising is an area of great long-term interest to me and with their specialism in selling to the regional marketplace, Eye Airports and their great team led by Rachel Davies are a perfect fit for CP Media, as we pride ourselves on being regional and digital advertising specialists.”

CP Media is the trading name of Community Partners Ltd, and provides direct media sales services to UK local authorities and companies.
