Matthew has worked in digital media for 14 years, having spent the last 8 years at MiQ. Most recently Matthew was the Sales Director for China where he scoped out and built the commercial operation for MiQ’s growth into China, now a major business unit and strategic pillar for the business.
His previous experience includes roles including Harvest and Starcom Mediavest.
Charlie is responsible for driving revenue and growth across our agency business and partnerships. His experience in Mobile, Content and Programmatic makes him a valuable member of the SeenThis family and his role as Group Commercial Director leading the Agency Sales Team is pivotal to the growth of the company.
Originally from Australia, Charlie began his media career in 2007 as an Agency Planner-Buyer with Dentsu Aegis. He moved to the UK to work as a Commercial Director for Outbrain to lead their sales team, promoting premium content for brands and agencies. Later, at Amobee, he led the EMEA Programmatic team, taking to market their DSP / DMP solution.
“Andy, Matthew, and Charlie are great additions to our team as we grow our partnerships with major global agency holding companies, media companies, and marketing & advertising technology companies. The new UK team in place is committed to increase the adoption of streaming technology at scale across the whole advertising industry - providing higher quality and performance as well as a proven reduction in data transfers. The future is tremendously exciting”, said Nick Titmus, General Manager UK at SeenThis.
