RadiumOne Lands Agency Veteran Mark Middlemas as It Enters Next Phase of International Growth

Former IPG Mediabrands UK Executive Named Director of Communications for UK and Europe

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2014) - Mark Middlemas has been named as the new Director of Communications, UK & Europe at advertising technology company, RadiumOne. Mark was previously Director of Marketing and Business Development, IPG Mediabrands UK.

RadiumOne builds intelligent software that automates media buying, making big data actionable for marketers and connects them to their next customer. Middlemas will drive RadiumOne's entire communications program forward across UK & Europe in line with the vision of founder, online advertising pioneer Gurbaksh Chahal.

One of Middlemas' key responsibilities will be to position RadiumOne's partnership program with large and small agencies from across the marketing spectrum. Mark becomes RadiumOne's 50th European employee, a number reached in just over two years. He will report directly to MD Rupert Staines, based in the European head office in London.

With a career spanning 18 years, Middlemas has successfully led pioneering brand teams for the likes of Coca-Cola GB, Bacardi-Martini, Xbox, Telegraph Media Group and MasterCard whilst at UM. A positive force for change, his most recent marketing role helped establish the agency's Curiosity Works positioning and deliver unheralded new business and awards success. This proven track record delivers the high quality attributes required to direct the future of a pioneering young organization.

Rupert Staines, Europe MD, RadiumOne, said, "Mark's appointment is a real step-change for us as a business. This newly created role will marry his phenomenal blue chip experience with our game-changing programmatic platform to attract global brands and agencies alike. Mark will be part of the senior team driving the next phase of business growth and innovation, so his strategic insight will be critical from day one."

"RadiumOne is spearheading the industry providing advertisers with the state-of-the art technology and service to run programmatic initiatives across every digital channel in response to actual customer's behaviours, actions and interests, so it's an exciting time to join such an innovative business," commented Middlemas. "I'm looking forward to taking the digital language and translating that into content that excites and enthuses brands and advertising agencies. The business has grown exponentially in the last two years and is challenging more and more brands every day."

Middlemas' appointment follows that of digital ad veteran Eric Bader to the position of Chief Marketing Officer in June 2013. Bader joined RadiumOne from Initiative, where he was Global President and Chief Strategy Officer.
