Summary of the year so far: 2013 represents a new era for ZenithOptimedia with the arrival of our new CEO, Tim Hipperson, and as an agency we are building towards our vision of a full service communications agency specialising in data and content driven activation and ROI strategic consultancy. This evolution has seen the management team strengthened with the promotion of Mark Howley to Managing Director, ZenithOptimedia Group and Natalie Cummins to Managing Director, Optimedia. So far this year we have delivered a strong new business performance including the consolidation of both the £50m eOne business and £10m Maxxium business, as well as winning Kayak and a number of digital briefs such as SEO for RBS and Toyota. We have also continued to invest heavily in areas of growth, in particular performance and content through Performics and Newcast respectively, delivering a broader and more rounded service to our clients.
