Mowle said of her appointment, “I am genuinely excited to re-enter the industry by joining MediaCom as the business seeks to redefine itself as a genuine solutions provider. The business has an ambitious and inspiring transformation agenda and I am looking forward to playing a key role in developing MediaCom to be the place everyone wants to work for.”
