APAC general manager, Peter Hunter, said: “Paul and Heidi are invaluable additions to our reinvigorated leadership team and demonstrate Sizmek’s commitment to aggressive regional growth.

“Paul is a proven leader in the adtech commercial arena and will lead our commercial team across APAC as we seek to form deeper strategic partnerships with agencies and brands.

“Heidi joins our ANZ team with a wealth of digital experience and an enviable network”.

Commenting on his appointment APAC commerical director, Paul Kent, said: “I share the company’s vision of providing an independent, transparent and results-orientated platform to clients and will be focused on accelerating its reputation as the alternative for brand and agencies who seek an alternative to restrictive walled garden environments.

Kent is based in Sydney where he will also be responsible for overseeing the Australian team in Sydney and Melbourne.

Before joining InMobi, he was regional director at AI marketing automation company Appier, and held senior commercial director roles at TrinityP3, APN News & Media and Fairfax Media.

He began his media career in London at Mediaedge:CIA (now Wavemaker) in London.
