Cartology reaches customers everyday with personally relevant messages via its data-driven marketing solutions across owned in-store, publishing and digital channels within the Woolworths Supermarkets and BWS ecosystem.
Cartology managing director, Mike Tyquin said: “Our clients are increasingly looking to us to deliver data-driven marketing solutions with meaningful commercial impact at the moments that matter most.
“At this time, we are seeing a clear acceleration of trends in the retail environment for how customers want to engage with brands, particularly digitally. As we start to think about a world post COVID-19, connectivity to customers is more important than ever.
“Adding this calibre of talent to the senior team to work with our FMCG and liquor client partners will significantly strengthen our marketing, product and partnerships expertise.
“Jessica, Steve, Jodie and Sean are joining us at an exciting time on our journey as we embark on our ambition to become a leading media player in the market.
