EyeWonder, Inc., a leader in online video and rich media advertising solutions, today announced the launch of its newest international sales and support office, in Ireland?s commercial and advertising center, Dublin. EyeWonder has selected one of Ireland?s top rich media experts, Barry Bedford, as the office?s Managing Director. This new office makes EyeWonder the only major rich media vendor offering complete sales and service facilities in Ireland, and together with its existing London, England office, enables the company to better directly meet its increasing demand from European interactive agencies, advertisers and publishers.
?Ireland has increasingly been a source of significant new business for us, and we are happy to respond to that demand with this new office,? notes John Vincent, CEO of EyeWonder. ?Our Dublin location fills a significant vendor void in the marketplace and gives Irish advertisers and agencies immediate and direct access to the most complete line of video and rich media ad products and EyeWonder?s proven online advertising expertise. Best of all, we were fortunate enough to retain Barry Bedford as our Managing Director. Barry is probably Ireland?s pre-eminent rich media expert, and his intimate knowledge and record of success with the nation?s top online agencies, advertisers and publishers will make him a tremendous asset to EyeWonder.?
As head of the new Dublin office, Bedford brings well over a decade of experience in online advertising and marketing to EyeWonder. His experience includes six years with KPMG Consulting specializing in online strategy for both internal departments and external clients. Most recently Bedford served as Managing Director of McConnell?s Multimedia, the New Media arm of McConnell?s Advertising, Ireland?s largest advertising and marketing communications agency. For over seven years there he managed online strategy and campaign development for some of the biggest brands in Ireland. Bedford was responsible for the first Instant Play Video Ad campaign in Ireland and helped create and execute major EyeWonder-powered rich media and video ad campaigns for top advertisers including AIB (Allied Irish Banks), ESB and IDA Ireland.
?I?m extremely pleased to be selected by EyeWonder as their Managing Director at their newest international office,? states Barry Bedford. ?EyeWonder pioneered Instant Play Video Ads over six years ago, and today they are the preferred rich media provider for many of the world?s top agencies, advertisers and publishers. It?s my job to ensure that Ireland is making the most of EyeWonder?s entire suite of video and rich media products and services. I am proud to be a part of a company with such a great reputation for innovation and service ? EyeWonder truly delivers richer media and richer results for all our clients in Ireland and beyond.?
