DEAN RUTHERFORD STEPS UP AS LESLEY CONWAY JOINS OUT-OF-HOME

Having first proven himself as an Account Manager at the start of his national radio sales career, over more than ten years, Dean has held a number of Management positions most recently as Vice-President, National Sales.
It came as no surprise that Dean was named as successor to Lesley Conway who accepted a new challenge as Executive Vice-President, Sales English Canada for Astral Out-Of-Home after nearly three years with Astral RadioPlus.
