I am delighted that Stuart Flint will be joining my team as Director of Sales, replacing Simon Davies who is relocating to the US to take on the role of General Manager, West Coast for the Microsoft Advertising Online business.

With over ten years’ experience in sales across some of the world’s leading digital advertising companies including, Yahoo! UK, Virgin Media and Hearst Digital, Stuart comes with a vast amount of industry experience and passion for getting up close and personal with agencies and clients alike. Stuart also brings a wealth of leadership experience to the team, most recently being promoted to Company Commercial Director and Managing Director for Yahoo! in the UK.

As we continue to partner with companies to challenge our technology and deliver media first experiences for clients and consumers, we are pleased to have announced such an important appointment to the team. Stuart’s track-record as a strong commercial leader has seen him achieve revenue targets across PC, Mobile and Tablet in emerging growth vertical sectors for a number of high-profile organisations.

Stuart will hold responsibility for the overall performance of the display business in the UK A&O division, overseeing the sales of agency and client campaigns integrated across MSN, Xbox, Windows 8, Windows Phone, Skype and Outlook.com, reporting directly to me. 

I’m sure you’ll join me in congratulating Stuart!
