"This role opens up a world of opportunity for me both professionally and personally," said Gibb. "Ocean Media is an innovative company. It's exciting and motivating to be joining a company which is enhancing and developing its UK business while at the same time making inroads across continental Europe in a number of sectors."
James Brooks-Ward, managing director of Ocean Media Group added: "Andy joins us at an exciting time. He will be heading up the re-branded Boat and Caravan Show, one of our leading UK consumer events, which has grown substantially in size and visitor numbers. Andy has a strong and diverse exhibition skill set which will be a valuable asset to us during this period of expansion and new launches across our Group."
Ocean Media Group was sold to a management buy-in team backed by AAC Capital Partners in 2007.
