MEC Australia has appointed Greg Cattelain to the newly created role of Programmatic & Social Director, tasked with managing the agency’s programmatic buying and cross-channel marketing services on behalf of a growing number of clients.
Cattelain, who is currently digital client director at Initiative, will be returning to MEC, beginning next Monday 24 October. In his new position, he will report to MEC Australia head of performance Miki Clarke with a focus on further strengthening MEC’s Performance offering in response to growing client demand.
