As part of the company’s continued international growth, performance media platform Acquisio announced today that it has appointed Diarmid Thomson as the company’s new Vice President of Sales. As VP of Sales, Thomson will be responsible for structuring and managing the global sales organization across all regions. He will also oversee all strategic agency relationships, and will focus on growing the company’s sales team by setting the tone for the sales culture throughout the organization.
Thomson brings 15 years of sales and sales management experience to Acquisio. Prior to joining Acquisio, Thomson spent 6 and a half years at Microsoft, most recently, serving as a Director and member of the Global Accounts and Agencies leadership team within Microsoft Advertising. In this capacity Thomson was responsible for developing and growing Microsoft’s search and display business at InterPublic Group and previously at Publicis Groupe worldwide. Prior to Microsoft Advertising, Thomson held other sales and account management positions within Microsoft.
“We’re extremely excited to have Diarmid join our team,” said Marc Poirier, co-founder and CMO of Acquisio. “His background, his approach, and his attitude are a perfect fit for Acquisio. Diarmid is known as a highly experienced sales leader who has cultivated powerful relationships throughout the agency environment. We look forward to growing Acquisio’s business with Diarmid leading our organization’s sales efforts and sales culture.”
Thomson is similarly excited about joining the company that makes the leading performance media platform for agencies. “Over the past two and half years of working and partnering with some of the industry’s top agencies, one thing became clear: agencies would benefit from a single platform that could consolidate all client data, and would also allow for real-time optimization of their clients’ digital media spend,” Thomson noted. “And Acquisio provides the solution. I’m delighted to join the Acquisio team and to lead sales efforts for its platform, which is the only one in this growing market that truly meets agency’s needs.”
