US— Marketing analytics agency MarketShare has appointed two new senior executives to bolster its presence in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and Japan.

Jeanette Carlsson has been named EVP and managing director for EMEA while Shigeyuki Tomomatsu has been appointed EVP and managing director for Japan.
