Shepherd (pictured) joins from PubMatic where he was managing director for APAC and India, where he was responsible for the launch and introduction of the PubMatic brand across the region.

Commenting on his new position, Shepherd said: “I am extremely excited to be working with a respected marketing powerhouse like OMG. This gives me an amazing opportunity to be able to work on the strategy of some of the largest brands in the Australian market.”

Leigh Terry, CEO OMG ANZ, added: “Paul has the perfect blend of client service, commercial and technical expertise to continue driving this specialised optimisation proposition. He is held in the highest regard in the industry and we are really pleased to have him on board.”
