Omnicom Media Group has extended its partnership with digital analytics company, Moat, to the Middle East. Aiming to provide greater transparency in measurement and performance, Omnicom Media Group, the media services arm of Omnicom Group Inc. has been collaborating with Moat since 2014.

“This value of extending the partnership with Moat was obvious to us from the beginning,” says Dimitri Metaxas, Regional Executive Director-Specialist Companies, Omnicom Media Group MENA. “Its benefits extend to all parties within the industry, as it allows us to better understand all the measured parameters and deliver a tangibly stronger performance. This alliance helps us move into a new era of measurement, ensuring that publishers and media partners are well-aware of our commitment towards the brands and businesses that our agencies represent. This is the latest step we’ve taken to enhance our clients’ marketing and business performance better.”

Omnicom Media Group Middle East and North Africa (MENA) has named new leaders for its analytics division, Annalect, as well as its programmatic trading desk, Accuen. Both companies will now report to recently promoted Executive Director of Specialist Companies, Dimitri Metaxas, who will be managing Resolution as well as Annalect and Accuen. Raouf Ketani has also joined Annalect MENA as Business Unit Director, from Annalect UK, where he will be working closely with the analytics and audience measurement specialists at OMD and PHD and the team at Annalect.
