GfK Customer and Audience Activation service takes GfK data such as pan-European purchasing and combines it with Eyeota’s audiences to create aggregated segments allowing brands, agencies and media groups with internationally consistent data, to target their campaigns with greater precision.

Waesche said: “Our new team brings a wealth of martech experience which will help put GfK, with its long history in data, science and research, at the forefront of data activation and marketing technology.”
