Commenting on his new role, Tim Hussain added: “Businesses are looking to create a competitive advantage from the opportunities that the growth in digital media present. Digital performance measurement is now taking centre stage and I’m excited at the prospect of working with some of the UK’s biggest advertisers that Ebiquity’s client base represents”
Tim’s appointment is the latest in a line of digital hires. In January, Michael Karg became Group CEO of Ebiquity, joining from digital agency Razorfish.

Elsewhere in the group, Federica Aperio, former Head of Digital at Ebiquity North America has joined FirmDecisions, Ebiquity’s global marketing auditor, in the newly created role of Managing Director, Digital.
