head of paid social
Jellyfish

Marc has over 10 years’ experience in paid social, working on some of the world’s most prestigious global brands. He has controlled budgets in excess of $150M during his tenure with TBG Digital, Starcom MediaVest Group and Sprinklr.

Now, as head of paid social EMEA at Jellyfish, Marc leads a team of specialists in developing and delivering best-in-class paid social strategies across the agency’s growing client base.

Marc’s vision for paid social is clear - it must become an integral part of the media mix through creating measurable, data-driven campaigns.

Why I am judging these awards

Each year the Social Buzz Awards showcase the very best that the social media industry has to offer. I’ll be looking for both innovation and effective measurement in equal part. Social media has come a long way and I’d like to see that reflected in the work.
