Middle East Communication Network (MCN), has announced the launch of Capella, a new specialised entity that will employ advanced media tools to guide strategy and improve the productivity of marketing and media spend for MCN’s client portfolio through consumer insights, research and performance analytics.
Capella was conceived to leverage the ever-increasing volumes of Big Data being generated by brands and consumers. The MENA market is a dynamic, competitive environment, making insights obtained through data analysis a crucial advantage for any advertiser. The optimisation of media spend is key in the region, and Capella will identify trends and insights that will maximise the efficiency of media transactions.
Headquartered at MCN’s Hive building in Dubai, Capella will be led by George Papandreopoulos, who transferred to the region from the New York office of Interpublic Group, MCN’s parent network. While there, he held a senior role in forecasting and intelligence at Magna Global, the strategic global media unit of IPG Mediabrands.
