Four key appointments to solidify Cint globally, strengthen its Silicon Valley footprint and further establish the company in EMEA and APAC


Cint, the world’s Insight Exchange, today announced four key appointments, including a chief operations officer, chief innovation officer and raising two regional executive vice presidents onto the Cint leadership team. This momentum further establishes Cint as an international company with strong strategies in the Americas, APAC and EMEA.

Richard Thornton, current Deputy CEO, will now add the responsibility of Chief Operations Officer, a newly created role, to this remit. With Cint’s international push, Thornton remains vital in designing upcoming initiatives, implementing all business operations and ensuring each region works toward the same unified strategy – to support the growing demand for first-party consumer data around the world.  The new role sees Thornton move back to London having spent the last year in San Francisco and an early priority is to accelerate Cint’s growing enterprise software licensing business.

“Richard, one of the most skilled and respected names in our industry, will help the regions coordinate and serve our global customer base even better than we do today,” said Morten Strand, CEO, Cint. “Strengthening a fast-growing company with an increasingly global user base will be key to pushing our business to new levels. I know no one better than Richard to drive, motivate and share skills across our three, well managed regions.”


Celebrates company-wide innovation

Oscar Carlsson has been appointed to Chief Innovation Officer and will relocate to San Francisco. Cint recognizes the vital need for continued innovation, both at a company and industry level. With this newly created position, Carlsson will help Cint formalize and encourage ongoing innovation, something that is a part of the company’s DNA, but is increasingly important to drive change and transformation in the industry and stay ahead of its competition. In Silicon Valley, Carlsson will help Cint to continue to bring its clients on a digital transformation journey in a collaborative way by finding new innovative partners and products that will continue to grow its clients business.

“Oscar not only generates new ideas, but he also recognizes innovation in others,” said Strand. “With Oscar’s incredible knowledge of Cint, our technology, people and our existing and future client needs, we could not have found a better person to take the relay baton from Richard and bring it into a successful future.”


 Solidifies regional management

Joining Cint’s management team and Jake Wolff, the regional executive vice president of the Americas, are Cint’s other two regional EVPs: Greg Dunbar whom lead the company’s EMEA presence and James Rogers in APAC. This move solidifies Cint’s global growth strategy and gives the three regions a direct voice in the setting and future direction for the business, transitioning it further as a true international company.

This ongoing momentum comes in the wake of Cint’s recent milestone regarding its ever-growing network of contactable consumers from its platform, having reached 40 million people globally, up from 19 million just six months ago. While many programmatic solutions help companies understand the “what” and “where” of a target audience, Cint’s self-declared data can help with the “who” and the “why” to create more meaningful engaging sponsored experiences.
