NEW YORK, April 2, 2012

NEW YORK, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Titan, the largest 'People in Transit' advertising company in the U.S. has hired Michael Riley as Senior Vice President, General Manager and Sam Hart as Vice President of Business Development, Airport Relations & Operations of a new division, Titan Air.

Mike Riley started in the advertising business in 1995, working for Transportation Media, the company that was founded by his father, Jim Riley, in 1973. During his time there, Mr. Riley developed a number of media formats that became, and continue to be, standards in the airport advertising industry. He earned the trust of many of the world's busiest airport concessions, as well as consistently exceeded revenue goals.

While at Transportation Media, the company operated 17 of the top 20 airports in North America including Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Newark, Boston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, St. Louis, Seattle-Tacoma and San Francisco. The company was acquired by Clear Channel Outdoor in 1998 and operated as Clear Channel Airports, where Riley served as President for over a decade.

Sam Hart served as Executive Vice President Airport Relations & Clear Channel Airports from 2000 to 2009, running business development for 18 airports as well as directing all new concession proposals. Mr. Hart has over 30 years of management experience and most recently served as Vice President, Partner Relations for Executive Media Network/RMG Networks, a digital media vendor responsible for virtually all airline VIP member lounge and in-flight advertising properties in U.S. domestic airlines.

With the addition of these two industry leaders, Titan has formed Titan Air, a new division but one consistent with Titan's focus in Transportation venues and vehicles. With the arrival of Messrs. Riley and Hart, Titan now benefits from a wealth of experience, knowledge and relationships in the Airport advertising business.

"People-in-Transit is Titan's passion. Airports and Airport travelers are a logical extension of our core business and Airport media will fit extremely well into our existing sales and marketing infrastructure," said Don Allman, President and CEO of Titan. "Mike and Sam know this industry better than anyone and we are excited to be able to have now a running start into the Airport advertising business."  

"We will approach Airports with the same professionalism, creative thinking and passion that we have always had at Titan," he added.

"Both Sam and I have long admired Titan's focus and growth over the last 10 years. We are both excited to be part of the team and this next chapter of the Titan story," said Mr. Riley. "Titan's 125 North American sales and marketing staff, coupled with our experience, is an exciting proposition both for agencies, clients and the airports we will be competing for. We will bring new media and innovative technology to the market."
