Marin Software, provider of the leading digital ad management platform for advertisers and agencies, today announced Jon Myers, Director, Account Management at Yahoo UK & Ireland, will join Marin in August as Commercial Director – EMEA.

Myers joined Yahoo after 12 years on the search and digital marketing agency side as a Director at both MediaVest Manchester and Latitude.

At Yahoo, Myers has been leading the search and display account management teams. Jon is recognised for his experience and thought leadership within the European online advertising industry as a regular speaker and moderator at conferences worldwide. He also sits on the Global Search Engine Strategies (SES) Advisory Board and regularly contributes his opinions to trade press as well as industry bodies such as SEMPO, IPA and the IAB over the years.

Jon will be responsible for overseeing the delivery of the Marin Software platform for clients across Europe. Marin’s team of multilingual European Account Directors and Client Services Managers will report into Jon. He will be working with agency clients including iProspect, Lbi / Bigmouthmedia, Razorfish and Neo@Ogilvy, as well as advertiser clients including Betfair, Hotels.com, Philips and Adidas. Jon will continue to be based out of London in Marin’s 70 strong European headquarters. After overseeing a smooth client transition to Jon, Stephanie Carr will be moving into a new role at Marin Software.

On his move, Jon Myers commented: “It’s a hard decision to leave Yahoo, after a great few years at the company. It’s a great opportunity to join a leading global technology platform provider with an esteemed client list like Marin Software. Their growth and global expansion across different territories in EMEA and APAC over the last couple of years has been sensational. Also, I am a big believer in the focus they put on having a global infrastructure, whilst supporting their clients locally.”

Ed Stevenson, Managing Director International & Agencies at Marin Software, commented: “Jon has been a leading light in this industry almost as long as it has existed in Europe. He is without doubt a superb hire for us. His knowledge, relationships and experience will provide great value to both our clients and us as a company. Our focus has always been on hiring leading talent in the industry, and Jon is among the best in the European online advertising industry.”
