Dave Wallace, Head of Consumer Apps at MediaCom UK said: “Mobile dominates the digital landscape, so it’s important that we continue to show an understanding of how apps fit within our client’s digital strategy. They play an increasingly important role in customer acquisition, servicing, relationship management and commerce and, increasingly, media is being used to drive traffic to apps through paid, social, search, print or TV – so getting this right is key. I look forward to bringing my expertise to our clients and continuing our push to make our digital expertise best practice across the industry.”
