He brings across knowledge in sales, ideation, strategy and planning through to execution.
Prior to his appointment at Blis, Smith was the country lead for ControlShift Indonesia, a global digital marketing technology company. He was previously digital director at Dentsu Aegis Network, Indonesia and business director Platforms, Asia for Omnicom Media Group in Singapore. Smith will spearhead Indonesian business development by introducing Blis’ location data advertising technology and solutions to agencies based there serving Southeast Asia’s largest digital advertising market. He will report to Richard Andrew, regional business director Asia, Blis.
