This is a very timely appointment for Upp.ai as it seeks to disrupt an entire sector bringing performance, value and control directly to retailers and brands globally via its adaptive AI platform.

Tim’s background includes leading European and international marketing for US technology businesses like RSA Security and EMC before focusing on UK based growth businesses where he led marketing for Mimecast, NewVoiceMedia, Egress Software and Sabio Group.

This will be a large-scale shift that will change the dynamics of paid media forever, offering greater visibility of ad performance, more granular control of spend and the ability to respond to changing market conditions that would not be possible without the power of AI.”
