Oath names Anna Watkins as UK chief

Anna Watkins has been hired as Oath’s UK managing director and country commercial director, joining after a stint at Mofilm where she was global chief executive and director.

She will be responsible for the promotion of Oath’s advertising solutions to brands and agencies, and will manage Oath’s UK sales teams, RYOT Studio branded content team, client vertical and product specialists and account management teams directly, as well as overseeing the wider UK business at Oath’s new offices in MidCity Place, Holborn.

Its brand-safe, premium environments and approach to building content in partnership with brands and agencies is exactly what marketers need right now.”
