Lawrence to leave JCDecaux Airports

Lee Lawrence, sales director at JCDecaux Airports, is leaving after 13 years with the company.

Lawrence, who was part of the team which earlier this year held on to the £500m, 10-year BAA advertising concession, leaves this autumn to start a new venture.

He reports to Don Sperring, MD of the airports division, and heads a team of 20, selling space at Britain's major airports, including Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted, and at Waterloo's Eurostar terminal.

The BAA and Eurostar contracts were originally held by Sky Sites, a company which Decaux bought in 1999 from French media conglomerate Havas, along with poster company Mills & Allen.

Lawrence is likely to leave in early October. He declined to give details of his new venture, but said he would be remaining within the outdoor industry.

He said: "With the Eurostar contract coming to an end in 2007, and the conclusion of the BAA review, it felt like the right time to go and start my own venture."
