Dunn is a founding member of the IAB Australia Retail Media Committee which was setup to align on industry needs, requirements, and standards to reduce friction and drive growth across the retail media industry.
Reflecting on his new role, Dunn shared, “Retail media is revolutionising the advertising ecosystem, bringing a high-margin business to retailers, enhancing consumer engagement with first-party data, and unlocking greater accountability via closed-loop measurement. I’m excited to join CitrusAd which has been established as the global leader in retail media as part of Epsilon and capitalize on the huge opportunity for further growth across APJ. Retailers in the region are blazing a trail with high-quality, high-visibility, and high-efficacy advertising businesses, and I look forward to partnering with them to build out their roadmaps with market-leading technology and experience.”
