MediaMonks has appointed Martin Verdult as managing director of the global creative production partner’s London office. In his new role, Verdult will work closely with MediaMonks’ London leads to grow the office exponentially into a creative digital hub.
Verdult joins from his former role as managing partner at Ogilvy & Mather Shanghai, where he ran the business and managed client relations across Asia since 2014. Verdult’s experience in digital advertising and business management includes collaborating with the digital native agencies LBi Lost Boys and Razorfish, and work for brands such as Korean Air, InterContinental Hotel Groups, H&M, Mondelez International and Budweiser.
MediaMonks CEO Victor Knaap said “MediaMonks London was our first international office and has been delivering brilliant creativity and craft ever since. With years of industry experience centered around managing client relationships and optimizing processes, Martin is the perfect candidate to lead our London office into this new chapter kicked off by our merger with S4 Capital”.
By joining forces, MediaMonks and S4 Capital are focusing on developing the production platform of the future, in which the London office plays a pivotal role consolidating creativity, data, media, and technology to service clients.
Verdult explained, “London is bustling with talent and business opportunities. In the coming months, we’ll be investing heavily in growing the team and building powerful partnerships--harnessing all of London’s potential into one digital creativity hub.”
MediaMonks London is planning for a rapid expansion in the coming months. The company is looking to triple its team in the coming two years and is already searching for a new office space.
