As chief executive of its largest region, Stiles (pictured) will lead Kepler’s 600+ media and consulting teams across the US, Canada and Costa Rica.

Since helping found the firm in 2012, Stiles has been a driving force behind its growth. In the past year, she has managed Kepler’s integration with Infectious Media – the UK and Singapore-based media services outfit, which joined the group in December 2020, acted as executive sponsor for many of the company’s largest clients. It also led the launch and expansion of Kepler Academy, a pro-bono training and mentorship programme focused on improving equity and inclusion in the digital marketing industry.

Stiles and the other Kepler co-founders met while working at MediaMath and realised that brands required a new type of strategic partner to help them effectively harness the tech-driven changes revolutionising marketing. In the firm’s initial years, Stiles focused on building the firm’s client solutions organisation.

She subsequently climbed the corporate ladder to become part of the company’s executive leadership team and, most recently, assumed the role of chief strategy officer. While in that role, Stiles led key strategic initiatives, including the company’s rebranding, expansion in Costa Rica, and relationship with corporate parent Kyu.

“Remy has been a fundamental contributor to Kepler’s offering and culture since the day we opened our doors,” said Rick Greenberg, Kepler’s founding chief executive.

“As such, she has a deep understanding of what got us here, but also what we’ll need to grow and evolve – as a team, as a community and as a company that is dedicated to providing unparalleled value and impact for our clients and partners. I’m incredibly excited to see where she helps take us in the coming years.”
