Our Managing Director, Matt Thomson, is leaving after 19 years to pursue new business opportunities. Thomson was one of the founders of TheNewsMarket. As SVP and later MD he helped to integrate the businesses following the acquisition of Medialink Worldwide (MDLK: NASDAQ) in 2009 and the combined company’s sale to the Atlanta-based agency Definition 6 in 2012.

In 2013 Thomson partnered TheNewsMarket with DMA Media Ltd to offer video production services to its clients in Europe and Asia.  The partnership flourished, and led to TheNewsMarket’s acquisition by DMA in 2017.

Thomson said: “The tie-up between TheNewsMarket and DMA has been a phenomenal success.  Matching TheNewsMarket’s technology with DMA’s expertise in content has been an award-winning formula.  With the integration now complete, it’s time for the next chapter.”

CEO of DMA Media Rob Beynon said: “Matt was a visionary in anticipating how brands can use video online and has continued to evolve TheNewsMarket’s offer with award-winning results. We thank him for his huge contribution to TheNewsMarket and DMA’s business.”
