Lotame elevates Luke Williams to MD, ANZ

Lotame, a real-time data solutions company that empowers clients to turn data into actionable audience insights and positive ROI, said that the company saw 50 per cent growth in the ANZ market last year under Luke William’s management. Key new and continuing partnerships include Network 10, Countdown, Real Estate NZ, Annalect AU, Seven West Media, Salmat and AA Smartfuel.

With the win of Network 10 and continuing partnership of Seven West Media, Lotame works with majority of the free to air television networks in Australia and manages to reach close to 100 per cent of all New Zealanders through current partnerships.

On the heels of this growth, the company also promoted Mr Williams to Managing Director, ANZ. Previously, serving as the Commercial Director, ANZ for Lotame, Mr Williams played an instrumental role in helping Lotame’s presence grow throughout the region. In his new role, he will spearhead ongoing and new partnerships to leverage Lotame’s advanced DMP capabilities and continue driving market growth, while also heading up the growth of the ANZ operations.

“There’s a huge demand for quality data everywhere and ANZ is no exception. As a leader in data management, we’re well-placed in delivering actionable insights, measurable results and value for our clients in this region,” said Andy Monfried, Founder & CEO, Lotame. “We’ve had tremendous success in ANZ and under Luke’s industry leadership, we’re confident we’ll deliver next-level campaign performances for new and existing clients.”

Lotame Syndicate – the company’s private second-party data marketplace, saw an increase of 300 per cent users in the APAC region since 2017. While Lotame Syndicate has been available for a few years, the company launched the Syndicate Online Marketplace this month. This new visual marketplace provides buyers with a transparent way to research and vet some of the sellers of second-party data on Lotame Syndicate that have opted-in to showcase their data.

“The adoption for DMP technology has exploded in the ANZ market. Agencies, marketers and publishers throughout the region are very receptive to learning new ways to better leverage the power of data for consumers – which speaks to the significant market opportunity,” said Mr Williams. “I’m really excited to continue expanding our success in this market and offer our best-in-class technology solutions.”
