Iván Markman, COO of MarketShare, said, “As our global demand increases, so does our need for seasoned marketing and technology executives to lead the adoption of our analytics and software. Jeanette Carlsson and Shigeyuki Tomomatsu are huge talents who will ensure our clients in EMEA and Japan have the business intelligence they require to make the most effective marketing resource allocation decisions on an ongoing basis.”
MarketShare’s global expansion is the latest in a series of decisive steps the company has taken in the last year to secure its position as the marketing analytics leader. In February, MarketShare announced its acquisition of MarketingNPV, a specialized technology and advisory firm that provides processes and tools to benchmark and improve marketing performance. MarketShare also entered into an alliance with comScore to integrate comScore’s proprietary search, display, mobile and video data into their marketing analytics in January 2011. In August, MarketShare acquired JovianDATA, a marketing business intelligence and data analytics technology firm that provides on-the-fly digital attribution analytics.
