Townsend Feehan, CEO at IAB Europe said: “The team and I are excited about working with this new Board, which has a good balance of new faces from great European media and technology brands, on the one hand, and strong continuity from companies and National IABs on whom we’ve relied for the past two Boards, on the other. It is hard to imagine a more interesting time to have this stewardship role for the industry,”
The new Board will oversee implementation of a three-year plan developed by the departing Board extending the Association’s scope beyond interactive advertising to digital marketing. The plan is built around three core areas: policy advocacy & regulation; frameworks & codes of conduct; and industry programmes.
