In depth on Michael Cooper
I was fortunate to work along side of Michael Cooper while we both were at Posterscope and continued our friendship while he was growing Rapport. A class act, very knowledgeable and professional leader in the Out of Home space. We wish him well.
Possibly the next CMO for OAAA? Wouldn’t that be great!
Michael Cooper in his own words.
In January 2013, I arrived in NYC, walked into small office allocated me in the far corner of a block near Grand Central and, started a business plan for Rapport Worldwide.
By July 16th of that year, we had finalized legal challenges, that tried to stop us trading, we had secured the global rights to the company name, and we had our first ‘Summit’, which consisted of about 9 people, whom I had convinced to join me in this crazy idea
July 16th, 2020, 7 years to the day from that first summit and, I close the door on my Rapport journey. Leaving a near billion-dollar company, with a footprint across 18 global markets. Infinitely more importantly, a team of the most incredible, talented, intelligent, dedicated, hardworking and fun people one could possible have the honor to lead, and who I know, guarantee the continued success of our little project. I thank each and every one of them, for putting their trust in me on this adventure.
So, time to kick back, try some nice wines/ tequilas, chill a bit, be a husband and a dad and, maybe ponder when and where to get it on again, and create some more magic.

“We will be focused on increasing our market presence and driving operational excellence across all aspects of our sales operations in order to realize the full value of oOh! in the Queensland market.”
