EMG has appointed Patrick Brand as the group’s new head of communications and marketing.
He will be charged with developing and executing EMG’s communications, public relations and marketing strategy, as well as guiding the recently started rebranding of the group.
Brand has extensive experience in the broadcast and media industry. He previously worked, both in permanent and interim positions, for companies such as NEP, Ericsson, Red Bee Media, D&MS and most recently at data centre operator Interxion Digital Realty.
“EMG’s main operating companies are among the most highly regarded brands in Europe and the group handles the broadcasting of the world’s largest events,” said Brand: “It is a privilege to bring my experience in broadcast, media and IT to EMG. The company has the talent and tools to unburden clients worldwide so they can focus fully on their core business: content.”
Shaun Gregory, CEO of EMG, said: “We are very pleased that Patrick, with his broad experience, has joined our team. In the coming months, we will further introduce the EMG brand internationally and familiarise our clients and colleagues with the full range of our innovative services and solutions. The digital transformation in the broadcast and media industry is in full swing and the possibilities for our customers seem endless.”
Brand will be based in the Hilversum office in the Netherlands.
