MediaCom appoints Head of Digital Analytics EMEA
19 October, 2010
MediaCom has appointed Max-Philipp Deitmer as Head of Digital Analytics EMEA. He will be tasked with supporting regional and local clients in selecting, establishing and optimising Website-Analytics solutions and will oversee their integration into holistic reports.
Max, who will support Oliver Gertz, Managing Director EMEA of MediaCom Interaction, will work with the central EMEA team and local MediaCom teams to grow the company’s digital analytics competences. Max will also work as a project consultant for MediaCom’s local teams, delivering website analytics projects, selecting and setting up the right tools, and running analytics reports. In addition, he will work with David Kyffin, Global Chief ROI and Direct Marketing Officer, to strategise ways of incorporating data-integration into MediaCom’s bespoke Response-Analytics tool, VISON.
Max joins MediaCom with extensive experience in the digital analytics sector, having spent two years as Head of Site Analytics Europe at Expedia, one of the leading global eCommerce platforms. More recently, he spent over a year at technology consultancy, SapientNitro. On his appointment, he said: "In the digital environment nowadays, analytics is becoming more and more important in the understanding of successful online businesses. I am excited about joining MediaCom and aim to integrate marketing and website analytics in order to create more actionable insights for our clients."
Oliver Gertz said: “Integrated Analytics and Reportings are at the core of effective online marketing. Right now, too many siloed systems collect data that often does not give marketers the full picture. We are very happy that Max has joined us and feel that his experience at a leading global eCommerce company can help our clients in EMEA establish and grow best-in-class analytics.”
Website Analytics tracks the behaviour of visitors to a website, allowing marketers to optimise the user-experience and improve marketing effectiveness. Historically, Website Analytics was separated from Campaign-Tracking and Optimisation through Ad-Servers. MediaCom aims to connect both of these solutions to give advertisers full visibility of the digital touchpoints with a user and optimise the whole user-journey, driving significant efficiency gains in the process. Landing page optimisation and AB-testing or multivariate testing can improve ROI on digital campaigns considerably.
MediaCom Interaction is currently working on a centralised approach to help local and global clients define a Web analytics strategy and select and set up the right technology for data collection and integration. The goal is to establish digital analytics across multiple data sources in order to gather actionable insights for website and marketing optimisation. For media enquiries, please contact:
