Profit Track 100

If your attention has been caught by a digital billboard recently, the chances are that Talon Outdoor was responsible for it. The company helps its clients —media agencies and advertisers — place outdoor advertising campaigns with billboard owners such as JCDecaux and Clear Channel. In 2017, profits rose to £9.6m and Mayfair Equity Partners acquired a 51% stake for an undisclosed sum. Barry Cupples joined as global chief executive last month, to work alongside founder Eric Newnham, 59.
