She will be working closely with the team to ensure IAB’s research efforts continue to assist the industry with insights into consumer behaviour, technology, brand, multi-channel marketing, measurement and analytics.”

Prior to joining ABC, Lisa spent more than a decade working for Nielsen in media research and consumer marketing.
