I’m really excited to join the Digiday team. It has repeatedly shown that it has the insight to be among the first to recognize key market issues and emerging trends that are impacting modern-day businesses. Today’s media landscape is gaining in complexity, but the opportunities are there to be seized. Digiday has made a strong mark in the U.S. and I look forward to building this presence in the U.K.
