The newly created position will include responsibility for developing DMGI’s presence in Asia and adjacent markets. The role will be based in Singapore.
He said of his appointment: “After 10 years at Landmark, I am extremely excited to be taking on the challenge of spearheading DMGI’s expansion into Asia, a market in which we already have experience and where we can see enormous opportunities.
“Landmark has made huge progress over the years and it has been an honour to work with the Landmark team, who, I am certain, will continue to have success expanding Landmark’s UK business and developing further in Europe”.
Mr Stout will continue to report to Suresh Kavan, CEO of DMGI, who said: “I’d like to thank Stephen for his leadership over the last 10 years and wish him the very best of luck in his new venture.
"We are all very excited about realising the opportunities we have identified in the Asian markets and Stephen is exactly the person to bring those opportunities to DMGI."
