Patrick Johnson, CEO and Chairman, Hybrid Theory said: “We have been applying our data-driven capabilities to digital media delivery for many years, but have listened and our clients need more. Brands now want to understand an online audience in real-time, have the ability to differentiate against peers and feed what they learn into their broader marketing strategy. What sets us apart is that we can take our real-time understanding of an online population and set that against a client’s wider marketing goals. We are on a journey to evolve from solving digital media problems to solving more strategic marketing challenges.”
