CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - September 03, 2015) - 4C, a data science company that is powering the future of advertising, today announced that it has named Hamid Qayyum as Senior Vice President of Sales, TV Activation. Reporting to CEO Lance Neuhauser, Qayyum will advance 4C's TV Verify and Measurement and Planning (MAP) products for use by brand advertisers, media agencies, TV networks, and cable operators.

Qayyum is the former Senior VP of Sales for FourthWall Media, the largest independent source of cable set-top box data and a 4C partner.

Recently, 4C announced that it has completed the acquisition of Teletrax, the largest global TV monitoring network covering more than 2,100 channels in 76 countries. The combined offering represents the most comprehensive platform for all stakeholders in the media industry.

"I share 4C's dedication to providing the preeminent tools for brands, agencies, networks, and operators to maximize ROI and yield," said Qayyum.
