Media Agency Group (MAG) has appointed ex-Google lead and digital specialist Ricardo Seixas to run its newly revamped digital division, ClickTap Media.
Seixas, who is renowned for delivering award-winning digital campaigns to brands across the world (including Brazil and the US), has brought his former Google team with him to capitalise on their strong UK & Ireland market knowledge.
As an early digital native, Seixas acquired experience working internationally in the digital space with consumer brands, start-ups, tech companies and digital agencies.
At Google, he led PPC experts and Google AdWords campaign specialists, supporting thousands of brands across the entire UKI market.
“The lines between traditional and digital media have never been so blurred and ClickTap Media was organically born through a growing digital need by our clients,” said MAG chief executive John Kehoe.
“Ricardo is one of the leading players in the digital world and he and his former Google team are a phenomenal asset to our business.
“We have an amazing array of clients working with us and since Ricardo’s arrival we have already been winning work from national rivals and clients including The Crystal Maze Experience, Herbalife and CuraPROX.”
Seixas’ brand and agency clients include, L’Oreal, Telefonica, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, Ambev, Municipal Chamber of Rio de Janeiro, Havas, Saatchi & Saatchi and more.
He said: “Media Agency Group is one of the UK’s leading integrated agencies and I am thrilled to head up ClickTap Media.
“The growing team is formidable with best in class expertise in all online paid channels and some excellent clients, and I look forward to work collaboratively with brands to help them grow and compete where it matters the most: online.”
