Roman will also be responsible for driving synergies across Dentsu Aegis Network brands where they can benefit clients.
“I’m excited to join Merkle during such a significant period of growth for the company across EMEA and in particular in Spain,” said Roman. “Helping clients reach maturity in their data and technology journeys, and driving their digital transformation programmes with Merkle’s unique people-based marketing approach is an attractive opportunity to someone with my background.”
Roman has over 15 years’ international experience in sales, marketing and business development with travel technology, internet and data-driven companies in Europe and Spain.
