Global Head of Data

Data & Analytics London, England


Data drives everything a marketing agency does – it generates insight, informs thinking, inspires brilliant solutions and ultimately tells us whether campaigns worked. But with an ever-growing volume and variety of types of data available, the biggest opportunity is in helping clients collect, connect and centralise their data so it can drive value in all areas of their business.
We can squeeze value out of data in all its forms – whether cookie or customer, inferred or imparted, first- second- or third-party – but bringing these data sources together delivers power that is far greater than the sum of its parts. From this base, data-led conversations don’t stop at the marketing director, they go all the way up to the CEO because data can drive improvements to a business’s bottom line, not just to its marketing campaigns.

To truly make the most out of these opportunities, the agency needs to develop three things:

Proposition: create a proposition and practice that joins data up across disciplines and uses it to deliver:
o Fresh insight that drives deeper and more meaningful connections with consumers
o Evidence-based budget recommendations to maximise return for clients
o A strategic, data-led approach to customer engagement / CRM
o End-to-end evaluation of activity along the whole customer journey path

People: create a company-wide understanding that:
o Data is our clients’ most valuable and powerful asset
o Data will tell us where, when and how we can influence consumer behaviour
o Data can fuel the biggest positive step-change in how the industry operates
o It’s an exciting time to be working in an agency that is investing in data in this way!

Promotion: present this philosophy and practice to the world to make MSix the first agency to embrace fully the power that data in all its forms can provide and to exploit the opportunity that it presents for our clients.
