He will report to both Mayur Patel and Sapna Patel. Prior to this elevation, Carruthers was CEO of Square Circle Media Outdoors since May 2009.

Commenting on the development, Carruthers said, “I am quite happy that there are exciting times ahead in the industry. I am more than happy to be part of the OOH company and will grow it to a larger function. In three years, I will make Square Circle the top OOH specialist in India. In five years, we will consolidate the position further and branch out of India.”

Carruthers was instrumental in setting up MOMS and OAP and has essayed roles ranging from that of a regional profit centre head in the early days to larger roles within companies such as MOMS and OAP. In 2006, Carruthers won the Pinnacle Club Award, which recognises contributions made across Clear Channel divisions in different countries in the sales and marketing function.
