Berlin-based programmatic advertising solutions provider Sociomantic Labs has appointed Benedict Hayes, former executive vice president of digital marketing firm iProspect, as its managing director for South East Asia and India business.
In his role, Hayes will focus on accelerating revenue growth and expansion of Sociomantic's operations in Asia Pacific, the company said in a statement.
