Simon Burgess will take the reins as Managing Director in the UK, the largest operation in TradeDoubler’s pan-European network of 18 markets, and will be immediately tasked with setting and achieving ambitious growth plans by pushing TradeDoubler’s integrated digital marketing portfolio spanning affiliate, search, display, lead generation and cross-media insights.
