Marie joins Ocean UK from Hydrow where she was global sales and marketing director
Premium digital out of home (DOOH) media operator Ocean Outdoor has appointed Marie Le Hur as marketing director for its UK business. Marie takes responsibility for the marketing of Ocean’s digital out of home portfolio to brands, agencies, specialists and landlords, reporting to Ocean UK CEO Phil Hall.
She joins the Ocean UK leadership team at an important stage in the company’s growth programme. Ocean’s development is led by significant new contract wins and the roll out of enhanced products for partners, agencies, advertisers and audiences.
Marie moves to Ocean UK from Hydrow where she was global sales and marketing director. Prior to that she spent four years at Samsung UK, rising to ecommerce marketing and creative lead.
Phil Hall said, “Marie brings a wealth of B2B, corporate and consumer experience from her work with both a global consumer brand and an entrepreneurial start-up. As an experienced marketing and ecommerce leader, we look forward to Marie taking the Ocean brand and proposition forward into a new era of out of home.”
Marie Le Hur said, “I am looking forward to joining the next stage of the Ocean voyage, drawing on my experience to champion the brand, the channel and help deliver on Ocean’s ambitious growth goals.”
Ocean’s recent OOH contract gains include the iconic Battersea Power Station in London and planning consent to install a purpose built advertising sleeve surrounding Marble Arch to help fund the monument’s restoration by English Heritage.
Ocean’s UK marketing department was previously managed by Helen Haines who has moved to a group role as head of brand and events, reporting to group CMO Richard Malton. Ocean’s other country marketing directors include Jesper Albansson who oversees the Nordics and Marlies Smits in Ocean Netherlands.
