Ben Wood is a veteran in the digital marketing industry. With over 17 years experience, he is one of the few media practitioners who can genuinely claim to be experienced in managing both traditional and digital media businesses.
In early 2013, Ben was promoted to President iProspect UK & EMEA and in May 2013 he took on his current role of President, iProspect Global with responsibility for growing the iProspect network and brand across the globe. Ben stepped up to the post after leading an innovative group of digital and data specialists in the United Kingdom for the Aegis Media division.
Ben’s impressive career began in traditional media planning/buying and progressed to running the Communications Planning department at creative agency Miles Calcraft Briginshaw Duffy and then to Managing Director at Carat Digital in 2005 where he helped to double the size of the business. In 2006, he successfully built an award-winning integrated digital offering of over 40 people as Managing Partner of sister agency Vizeum.
In 2008, Ben took on the role as Managing Director of TradeDoubler (then Europe’s leading Performance Marketing business) across the UK and Ireland, where he managed revenues of over £100m and led a team of over 100 staff.
In the spring of 2009, Ben rejoined Aegis as MD of its digital performance media business, iProspect. The agency doubled in size both in terms of revenue and profitability in 2010 and has continued to be highly successful with organic revenue growth of over 60% in 2012.
