MediaLink boss Michael Kassan is to send his top lieutenant, Wenda Harris Millard, to launch the US company’s London office in its first big move since its acquisition by Ascential.
Millard will “relocate to London” in mid-May but will “retain her current responsibilities” as vice-chair of US-based MediaLink “while she establishes the UK-based operations”.
MediaLink, an advisory business that runs agency pitches and does headhunting, is expecting to make local hires in London office imminently.
Kassan, who founded MediaLink in 2003 and is visiting London this week with Millard, said: “Our plan is to go global and go fast.”
He said Millard “has the global dexterity and business acumen required to expertly serve our clients in the UK and European markets as we continue to expand”.
