Former SAP and Oracle Director to Spearhead Kenshoo's EMEA Expansion

Rob Coyne tasked with helping digital marketing technology company capitalise on growing opportunity in Europe and beyond

London (October 31, 2013) - Rob Coyne, who has held senior positions at global software companies, SAP and Oracle, has been appointed Managing Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Kenshoo (www.kenshoo.com), the global leader in premium digital marketing technology, with a remit to drive further expansion in the region.

Coyne, whose 25 years' of IT sector experience most recently includes positions as Director of Database & Technology and Business Analytics at SAP UK and Regional Sales Director at Oracle, joins at a time when Kenshoo is poised to increase its investment across EMEA.

"With search and social channels becoming more and more vital for companies looking to win and retain customers, the market for our technology is growing rapidly. To maximise this opportunity for our clients, Kenshoo is now entering the next phase of its development with a significant investment programme in EMEA, including a recruitment drive across sales, technical and support functions," explains Coyne.

"We're already seeing significant customer acquisition from our competitors in EMEA and we recently achieved our highest-ever monthly sales in the region. We know that for every pound customers spend on Kenshoo technology, they are achieving an eight-fold return on their investment. So the timing is perfect for us to push ahead and bring our innovative solutions to a broader audience."

Key hires are planned in Germany as the company wants to seize the opportunity to grow its presence in Europe's strongest economy as well as expand in central Europe and Scandinavia. The UK and France have been strong markets for Kenshoo and are seen as primary growth drivers that will receive additional focus.

"Kenshoo love to continually test the boundaries, delivering new products to meet the needs of digital marketers in the new age of performance marketing. We're targeting double digit growth in EMEA by continuing to innovate with our product and recruit and retain the best people. I'm proud to be a part of this team," said Coyne.

The Kenshoo platform is used by brands and agencies to optimise search marketing, social media, and online advertising. The company is backed by Sequoia Capital, Arts Alliance and Tenaya Capital.

"Kenshoo's core values are innovation, passion, and humility. Rob embodies our DNA and brings strong leadership and focus to our teams in EMEA. I'm confident he'll keep the bar high for client excellence and deliver results at Kenshoo," commented Ted Krantz, SVP Revenue for Kenshoo.

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
