MediaCom ups its global and regional offerings with two new hires: Matthew Mee as its first-ever global chief strategy officer and Dominic Guba (pictured) as global chief investment officer.
As a 17-year MediaCom veteran, Mee transferred from his prior position as head of strategy for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and will work with regional and local strategists to help businesses around the globe.
He will continue his role as strategy lead on a number of major clients while a succession plan is being worked out in the coming months.
Guba, who was previously the global head of trading, moves to his new role of global chief investment officer after joining Mediacom from Aegis since 2010.
In his new position, Guba will partner with local leadership teams to better their products and services, develop and apply trading models and optimizs the 89-country network’s investment processes.
He will continue as primary investment management lead with MediaCom parent, GroupM.
Guba’s previous role will be taken over by Nicolas Grand, who joined the company in 2011 as global investment director.
Both Mee and Guba will report to worldwide chairman and CEO Stephen Allen, who said he’s excited to see how the two will move the company forward.
“We are firmly committed to developing careers at MediaCom, and I’m excited to introduce Matthew and Dominic to an even wider base of clients around the world,” said Allen.
“As new members of the global leadership team, a vital part of their remit will be to ‘pay it forward’ by identifying and nurturing the individuals who will become the next generation of phenomenal leaders at MediaCom.”
