Tremor promotes Sue Hunt to MD EMEA to drive programmatic offering

Tremor Video has appointed Sue Hunt as managing director for its EMEA region.

The promotion sees her move from her role as senior director of programmatic for the same region to take over from the departing Alex Macnamara.

She will drive the video ad tech firm's increased focus on programmatic as well as managing its media and publisher networks.

Hunt has spent her career in digital media, beginning at Yahoo and AOL, before moving into the programmatic space in 2010. She spent three years as director for EMEA for Yahoo’s Right Media ad exchange and established the UK business for SSP Improve Digital as the UK managing director.

Speaking of the appointment Greg Smith, head of international and programmatic said Hunt's "rich and broad range of ad tech experience, from sales to operations, across some of the industry’s biggest players made her the obvious choice to accelerate Tremor’s business.”

In an accompanying move, sales director Luke Phebey will be taking on an expanded role helping the UK sales teams develop strategic media solutions for clients.
