CARMA, a leading global media intelligence provider, today announces a new leadership team for its European and American markets. The move underscores the company’s commitment to serving its customers with integrated, customized and scalable enterprise solutions for media monitoring, evaluation and insights.
Richard Bagnall joins as CEO for Europe and the Americas and will also assume the role of Global Co-Managing Partner. In this newly created role, Bagnall will have broad responsibility for driving market growth and ensuring CARMA remains a trusted partner to global business executives.
Paul Hender comes on board as COO for Europe and the Americas where he will oversee development and delivery of insights for CARMA’s clients.
Jason Weekes also joins the leadership team as Commercial Director for Europe and the Americas. In this role, he will lead business development and client solutions in both markets. Weekes has a long track record of leading sales and marketing efforts that have produced revenue growth and improved customer retention and satisfaction.
“CARMA’s consistent growth and track record over the past 30 years has taken it from evaluation sector pioneer to international leader in the provision of best-practice media intelligence services,” said Global CEO Mazen Nahawi. “The new leadership team for Europe and the Americas will accelerate our growth, innovation and client servicing blending the best of technology with human expertise and consultancy.”
The team of Bagnall, Hender, and Weekes have worked together previously at a number of organizations for approaching two decades. Their longstanding collaboration will enable them to become quick and effective contributors to CARMA’s customer success stories as well as the company’s exciting growth plans.
Bagnall currently serves as Chairman of AMEC, the International Association for the Measurement and Evaluation of Communications, the global trade organization for the media intelligence industry. He is a sought-after speaker on the global stage on best practice in measurement and evaluation of communication and how to apply it in a disrupted communications market. Bagnall is a Life Fellow of AMEC and a member of PR News’ Measurement Hall of Fame.
As a trusted advisor to global brands, Hender has helped his clients earn more than 30 industry awards and most recently served as Head of Insight, EMEAI at Cision. He has played a leading role in the development of key industry education resources including AMEC’s Integrated Evaluation Framework and the new Measurement Maturity Mapper (M3).
“I’m excited to have Richard, Paul, and Jason as my partners in CARMA’s mission to expand our delivery of excellent insights in Europe and America,” said Nahawi. “Their collective leadership and talent will make an immediate impact on our clients and the marketplace.”
