"His vast experience and pivotal roles leading digital companies through change, rapid growth and innovation will add a real depth and spark to our APAC efforts, as well as another brilliant strategic brain for us to help deliver on our ambitions for our clients.”

Healy has 20 years’ experience in product and operation leadership positions driving business growth and profitability for major advertising technology and media performance companies across international organisations.

Most recently, Healy was global officer, programmatic and addressable media at Dentsu International in London, where he led the global strategy acrossprogrammatic and addressable service lines, including the development of new cross-channel-digital operating models, teams, and platform products.
