Movers & Shakers: July 2015

July shot past like a bullet train, so here’s some of the job updates that you might have missed in the last month.

Let’s start with the agencies, where Havas Media’s James Cooper has stepped into the position of global performance director after six years at the company.

Cooper will be rolling out and managing Ecselis, its PPC, SEO, affiliate and display performance brand, while Morgan Anning will take his post as head of acquisition.

7thingsmedia said farewell to former account director Fiona Gandy, who joined multi-brand fashion retailer Net-a-Porter as performance marketing strategist.

Brand agency ORB has boosted its roster having secured a number of new contracts, appointing Jodie Price as account manager, Helen Page as designer and Rick Malhi as creative strategist.

Mobile

Mobile commerce and proximity marketing specialist Proxama has installed its CFO John Kennedy as interim chief executive.  

This followed former CEO Neil Garner announcing his intention to step down in May 2016, while he remains on the board to lead strategic development of tech, products and partnerships.  

Meanwhile cloud-based iPad Point-of-Sale (PoS) provider ShopKeep announced the hire of Christophe Delacroix - founder of PoS reseller BlueBird - as general manager in line with its launch in the UK market.

Display

Polish display ad tech company RTB House continues to expand abroad, installing Alexandros Rigas in its Greece headquarters following openings in Turkey, Russia and the Czech Republic.

Bringing 15 years of experience in online media and a career at ITV, Jon Block has joined the ranks of video ad specialist Videology as EMEA vice president of product and platform.

Skin-based ad experts Sublime Skinz onboarded Lisa Menaldo as UK managing director, having left the same position at programmatic trading company Bannerconnect.

Content monetisation startup VigLink took on former Pandora Radio senior director of HR in the same capacity. Teryle Macdonald has held senior positions at GE, NBC Universal and Comcast.

Online games marketing specialist ad2games announced a double title for new hire Sheila Kagan, who joins as chief operating officer and managing director combined.

A Tel Aviv native, Kagan previously served as senior VP of client development at performance advertiser Matomy, and director of affiliate market and operations at 888.com.
