Well, that was quick. ADMA is once again on the hunt for a new managing director, following the departure of Ben Sharp who has exited the organisation after just two weeks.
Sharp, who was formerly the boss of AdRoll in APAC, was appointed to lead the industry association following the departure of ADMA CEO Jodie Sangster, who resigned after seven years to join IBM Watson as CMO Liason lead.
Steve Sinha, who is currently acting CEO of ADMA’s parent company the Australian Alliance for Data Leadership group (AADL), will now oversee ADMA’s operations until a replacement MD is found.
“ADMA and Ben Sharp have agreed to part ways, effectively immediately,” ADMA said in a statement.
“All ADMA operations remain under the competent guidance of AADL Acting CEO, Steve Sinha until we appoint a replacement Managing Director for ADMA. We wish Ben well in his future endeavours. ADMA has an exciting future ahead and we look forward to sharing further updates in due course.”
Sharp has almost twenty years’ experience in senior adtech, digital marketing, publishing and advertising roles at companies including Allure Media, Yahoo! AU/NZ and Yahoo!7.
Prior to joining ADMA, he was vice president and managing director APAC, for AdRoll, a role which was axed when the San Francisco-based adtech company gutted its local operations in December.
