Mark Dalgleish, the Sydney-based digital media and marketing entrepreneur, will join the Asia Pacific Digital board in July, bringing 25 years international experience in building profitable digital media and marketing businesses to APD.
Dalgleish has made a significant investment in APD through his participation in this month’s capital raising, announced to the Australian Stock Exchange on 16 March.
Dalgleish has had a distinguished career in digital media and marketing in Australia and the UK, including building and selling two digital marketing businesses to publicly listed companies – Creation, which he started in the UK in 1990 and sold to Interpublic Group in 2000, and C4 Communication which was acquired by Photon Group (now Enero Group) in 2007.
APD chairman Roger Sharp said Dalgleish brings valuable international digital media and marketing experience to round out the board’s client-side experience. “Mark is one of the most successful digital media and marketing entrepreneurs in Australia and we are looking forward to working with him as we grow APD in the region.”
Dalgleish added: “APD is absolutely in the right place at the right time to capitalise on the exponential growth we’re seeing in ecommerce and online marketing across Asia. I’m very excited to be coming along for the ride.”
