Exterion hires Telegraph’s Dave King as managing director

Dave King has been appointed UK managing director of Exterion Media, while former MD Jason Cotterrell becomes group development director.

Exterion Media has boosted its position in the UK after Cotterrell helped to win Transport for London’s expanded, eight-year £2bn outdoor contract last year.

King, who has been executive director at Telegraph Media Group for the last 12 years, will focus on growing franchise operations, accelerating revenue growth and leading Exterion’s transition into a digital media company.

“Attracting someone of Dave’s calibre speaks volumes about our business,” said Shaun Gregory, CEO of Exterion.
