LoopMe wins ‘Tech Provider of the Year’ at the British Media Awards

We’re thrilled to announce that last night we were awarded ‘Tech Provider of the Year’ at Campaign’s British Media Awards ahead of competition from Google and Reuters. We also received Bronze in the category ‘Best Commercial Use of Data’ for our PurchaseLoop product, which uses AI to optimise brand metrics.

Now in its seventh year, the BMA’s recognise ‘media owners and companies that are innovating and adapting at a time of unprecedented change in media’. The judges included Liz Jones, CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network, Jon Slade, Chief Commercial Office at the FT and Gordana Buccisano, Head of Business & Commercial Planning Global Clients, Publicis Media.

They felt that LoopMe addressed a specific problem with brand advertising on mobile in a smart way which benefits the ads ecosystem. The judges also felt that LoopMe offered a new approach to engagement and effectiveness using AI, offering end to end user experience and fantastic results.

LoopMe CEO and Co-Founder Stephen Upstone commented, “To win such a prestigious award is a testament to the hard work everyone has put in globally. From product to data science, this is an award for everyone!”.

Josh Barnett: Employee Spotlight

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I was born in North West London on a sunny Wednesday in February 1990 where I’ve pretty much lived my entire life. In my 28 years I have dabbled in a few careers such as working for a football agency and trying my hand at music production; but didn't feel quite at home until I landed in media.

My hobbies include going to see my beloved Tottenham Hotspur play & watching the UFC.

Why did you decide to join LoopMe? 

In all honesty, I didn't know much about the world of media before joining, but a friend of mine recommended LoopMe to me as they were on the hunt for a new salesperson. I interviewed with Stephen, Rikki and Will and shortly after began my role in sales at LoopMe - It has certainly been a fun journey over the last 4 years.

What’s your job role and day to day responsibilities?

I work in the UK Agency Sales team looking after Publicis - they look after clients including Samsung, Heineken and EA Sports

What’s been the best moment at LoopMe so far?

There have been countless memories, I’d have to say my favourite was when we hosted our Octoberfest party in our old office – for anyone who was there, it was not a night they’re likely to forget!

Tell us a fun fact about yourself? 

I am a distant relative of the famous gangster actor Edward G. Robinson
