MediaLink has recruited Nick Manning to be senior vice-president in London to drive European expansion.
Manning will be a British face for Michael Kassan’s US media consulting business which is looking to expand internationally after being acquired by Ascential, the owner of Cannes Lions, a year ago.
He will report to Kassan and work alongside Wenda Harris Millard, vice-chairman of MediaLink, who moved from the US to London last year.
Manning was most recently chief strategy officer of Ebiquity, where he led much of the media auditing and benchmarking firm’s work on transparency, and he previously co-founded Manning Gottlieb OMD.
He will work on a range of services for MediaLink clients, including managing agency pitches and relationships, business consulting and organisation and M&A.
