Wildstone Appoints New General Counsel to Help Drive International Growth

Bruce Jones joins with over 30 years’ experience as Wildstone’s overseas expansion gains pace

Wildstone, the leading owner of outdoor media infrastructure across the UK and Europe, has appointed a new General Counsel as the company’s international growth gathers momentum.

Bruce Jones joins Wildstone with over 30 years’ experience as a lawyer in private practice, having specialised in corporate and commercial work in London, Bangkok and Singapore. Since 2021, Jones has combined private practice with work as a consultant through Linklaters LLP, performing several in-house assignments, including as interim general counsel. Having graduated from the University of Nottingham with a degree in law, he holds qualifications as both a solicitor and a barrister (non-practising).

As General Counsel, Jones will have responsibility for overseeing Wildstone’s legal function both in the UK and internationally.

Wildstone currently owns and operates over 5,000 OOH assets across the UK, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands and Germany, and recently announced plans to expand into the Australian market. The company is working both to expand its footprint across its existing and new European markets through the acquisition of further sites, and to accelerate digital transformation within these markets, by converting hundreds of traditional paper billboards into digital.

Bruce Jones, General Counsel, Wildstone said:

“It’s an honour to join the talented and creative team at Wildstone. The existing management has built an amazing business with huge potential. I’m thrilled to come on board to help shape the next stage of growth.”

Jonathan Chandler, Group Managing Director, Wildstone said:

“In the short time I’ve been working with Bruce, it’s abundantly clear the value he brings. His extensive experience across different markets and territories is invaluable as we continue to expand. Bruce is a great fit for our team and is already helping accelerate the delivery of our rapid growth business plan.”
