The Media Eye announces PHD founder
Nick Horswell as new Chairman

As part of the company’s recent restructure, having successfully raised expansion capital, entertainment and fashion resource The Media Eye has announced Nick Horswell as Chairman. A media industry expert, Nick Horswell spent over 15 years working for a number of full-service ad agencies and in 1990, Nick set up his own media agency, PHD. By 2000 PHD had become a group of eight companies, employing 240 people, turning over nearly £400m a year, with very healthy profits and margins. It has since become one of the leading global media networks, with 70 offices in 60 markets. In 2002 Nick moved his focus to his private investments and is now supporting the growth of The Media Eye as Chairman, coming on board to lend his expertise and steer the company’s expansion drive for 2013 and beyond.

The Media Eye MD, Caroline Citrin commented: ‘Now that The Media Eye is beyond its launch phase, with strong subscription renewals and a rapidly expanding client base including ITV, The Daily Mail, Bauer, Telegraph Media Group, Net-A-Porter, Hearst and Northern & Shell, I look forward to working more closely with founder investor Nick. We're privileged to have Nick’s considerable experience in the sector to hand as The Media Eye grows the team and prepares to launch several new services and data streams this year. Celebrity and fashion will remain the company's focus and with The Media Eye team's unrivalled experience in the information arena, we are looking to expand our portfolio into different territories and sectors. It's an exciting time for The Media Eye and under our new structure we're well placed to pre-empt the demands of the market, and stay ahead of developments in this fast-paced industry. Having been approached by several prominent industry figures, we are now in advanced talks with additional non executive directors and investors, and expect to be able to make a further announcement over the coming months."
