EYE Moves: Ad-Lib Digital hires three

Creative technology ad platform Ad-Lib Digital continues its recruitment drive, with three further senior appointments.

Stacey Edwards, who is the second hire from Criteo in two months, joins as Ad-Lib’s first Global Head of Operations and Finance, Scarlett Long, ex Digital Strategy lead at Merkle Periscopix becomes Head of Client Services and Charlie Ashe, experienced programmatic strategist is appointed by Ad-Lib as Sales Lead.

Ad-Lib delivers hyper targeted relevance to consumers through data driven creative advertising across display, video and social platforms.

The new appointments follow the announcement in December that a new advisory board has been set up with David Phillipson, serial entrepreneur, who sold his app analytics attribution company AdX-tracking to Criteo in 2013 and was MD until 2017; and Patrick Collister, veteran ad-man, formerly ECD and Vice Chair of Ogilvy & Mather – to guide founder Oli Marlow Thomas on the Ad-Lib Digital’s next stage of development.

As we enter our second year of operation, we are on an aggressive mission to hire the best in class talent to handle our growing blue-chip client list. This is a dynamic time for the industry, and I’m excited by the calibre of people joining the Ad-Lib team who bring with them the necessary skills and expertise to manage our ambitious growth and expansion plans.

Oli Marlow Thomas, founder of Ad-Lib
