Miroma SET consolidates global outdoor media into Enhance Outdoor
Sports, entertainment and tech group takes OOH in house
Miroma SET, the global audience and customer amplification company, is consolidating global outdoor media into new global OOH specialist, Enhance Outdoor. Enhance will work with sister agencies Dewynters, Wake the Bear and Sold Out in the UK and SpotCo in the US.
Servicing Miroma SET’s sports, entertainment and tech client base, which includes Live Nation, AEG Presents, IMG, MasterClass and Simba, Enhance combines strategy and creativity with technology and data to target and enhance consumer experiences on a local, national or global scale, in ‘out of home’ environments. The new company focuses particularly on driving innovation, digital solutions and building addressable audiences, with an emphasis on measuring performance and delivering outcomes.
Paul Summers, Miroma SET Chief Operating Officer said: “Miroma SET has taken the strategic decision to appoint Enhance as its in-house global OOH media specialist across the group. Enhance will service Miroma SET’s agencies and deliver market leading outcomes for their clients by challenging the status quo and delivering upon their core proposition which is to intensify, increase, or further improve the quality, value or extend their clients marketing spend.”
Lord Michael Grade, Chairman of the board of Miroma SET added: “Outdoor advertising has undergone a meteoric shift in recent years, with innovation being driven both by media owners and the supporting martech sector. Enhance will work with them to bring brands closer than ever to audiences and their passions.”
Mike Cooper is leaving Miroma Group as head of its outdoor operations as the company consolidates out-of-home into a new global business called Enhance Outdoor.
Cooper, announced last September as then Miroma Group’s Global Managing Director Out Of Home Operations, will now be leaving the business.
Mike Cooper, who joined last year to develop Miroma’s OOH proposition and identify new opportunities, will now be leaving the company. Miroma Group launched Miroma SET in June and Enhance will now be the global audience and customer amplification company’s global OOH specialist.
According to a spokesperson for Miroma Group, Cooper’s appointment last year was “an exploratory hire to seek out new opportunities. Now we have set up the business, and hired UK and US country leads Tom Pirog and Annie Abbot respectively, we have parted company amicably.”
Cooper, who reported to Miroma SET founder and CEO Marc Boyan, had joined from Interpublic Group, where he was president and chief executive of outdoor agency Rapport Worldwide.
Mike Cooper stated: “The opportunity to work with the Miroma SET team to create a new player in the industry, focused on the future, has been a hugely exciting experience. I have no doubt that Enhance will quickly build a name for itself delivering exceptional results for its launch clients and beyond.”
