My main focus will be to fully integrate the traffic, sales and ad-serving aspects into a cohesive full service offering, as well as expand on our reporting services to ensure that we also carry the analytics benefits through to our publishers, advertising clients and agencies. Clients can rest assured that our core business will always be to provide flexible packaged solutions, tailored to their individual needs, ensuring we deliver the most informed, optimised and measurable strategies possible. Furthermore I will also be aiming to increase our mobile reach though partnering with carefully selected mobile platforms, and investing in experienced mobile professionals to enhance our mobile service offering to both advertising clients, as well as publishers.”
