Wildstone appoints new European operations director to drive EU digitisation and growth

Outdoor media infrastructure business Wildstone has appointed Yvette Meijer to help the company as it works toward an expansion and digitisation drive across Europe.

Taking on the role of European operations director, Meijer will help Wildstone expand its footprint through the acquisition of further sites, while accelerating digital transformation by converting hundreds of traditional paper billboards into digital.

Meijer joins the company with over 35 years of operations, procurement and management experience across telco, having previously worked for Ericsson, Nokia and most recently Cellnex Netherlands.

In her new role, Meijer will work closely with Wildstone’s Global MD and COO, primarily to provide strategic oversight of the European business, help run day-to-day operations and support the EU MDs in driving Wildstone’s European growth and digitisation strategy.
