Supponor has announced the appointment of Sir Martin Broughton as its new chairman, replacing Matthew Wheeler who is stepping down after seven years in the post.
Broughton previously served as the chairman of British Airways and president of the CBI.
His appointment follows the sports virtual advertising company’s announcement of Ross Hair as MD in November 2018.
James B Gambrell, CEO, Supponor, said: “We are extremely grateful to Matthew Wheeler for his committed leadership during his tenure as chairman while Supponor commercially launched as the leading virtual advertising technology solutions provider to live, Tier 1 Sports. I could not think of anyone better than Martin to take over from Matthew to lead Supponor as it expands globally to capture the rapidly growing market adoption of Supponor’s virtual technologies. Martin’s unsurpassed business acumen, extensive industry contacts and understanding of the sports market will help challenge us to deliver real value for all of our partners and customers.”
