Sociomantic Labs Ramps Up Leadership for European Growth

Programmatic Display Advertising Leader Restructures Management Team to Focus on New Business Opportunities in Europe

BERLIN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- Sociomantic Labs recently restructured its global management team with an aim to accelerate its growth in Europe, the company's founding region identified as a key opportunity market for 2014. Robert Bosch, who joined Sociomantic as Chief Sales Officer EMEA in August of 2013, has been appointed as Chief Sales Officer of the global organization and will be spearheading Sociomantic's sales worldwide. Gavin Wilson, previously Managing Director UK, has been promoted to Managing Director Northern and Southern Europe and will be responsible for overseeing sales in the region. The newest addition to Sociomantic's management team will be Karsten Müller, currently Deputy Chief Operating Officer at Axel Springer Media Impact, a German media marketing and sales organization. He will serve as Managing Director for the DACH region (Germany, Switzerland and Austria), based in Sociomantic's Berlin office.

"Our international clients expect us to work and collaborate across country borders. To meet these expectations, we pool our European sales activities to deliver customer-centric services for our pan-European partners," said Robert Bosch of Wilson's appointment. "Gavin's new role is a key leadership position and I am pleased to appoint one of our most esteemed experts to this new challenge. In the past years, Gavin built not only a strong operational business, but also set the right course for our strategic growth within the UK. His experience will help Sociomantic to expand our growth to new European industries and regions."
