Bigmouthmedia has announced the appointment of Ian McCaig to the company’s board.
Joining Europe’s largest independent digital marketing agency in a non-executive role, the lastminute.com chief executive brings a wealth of client side international business experience to the position.
“Digital marketing plays an increasingly important role in the success of online commerce and it is a particularly exciting time for this growth sector,” said McCaig.
“The industry is set to take an even more prominent place on the global stage and, as a leading-edge brand with a great history and pan-European footprint, bigmouthmedia is perfectly positioned to remain at the forefront of this fast evolving industry.”
McCaig, who will remain in his lastminute.com post, has a history of involvement in companies poised to make a major impact on the international markets.
He was appointed COO of lastminute.com in 2003 and has been responsible for the group’s operations throughout Europe. Since joining he has worked on the growth and development of lastminute.com and has successfully led the integration with Travelocity since its acquisition in July.
Aged 41, McCaig was previously vice president of 3G operations at Nokia and spent seven years overall in the telecommunications industry.
“We are particularly excited by the addition of Ian to our board”, commented Steve Leach, CEO of bigmouthmedia.
“While his extensive experience in the online and technology sectors will deliver obvious benefits, his mastery of the mergers, acquisitions and integration process will be of great value as we enter the next phase in bigmouthmedia’s development.”
