UK – Media monitoring and analytics company Newton Media has established a social media agency Newton Insight led by former Kantar director, Philip Lynch.

Newton Insight will run out of London and Prague with a New York office planned for 2017.

The company said it was pioneering new methodologies in social insights with the aim of making social data accessible and more actionable for clients.

Before taking the managing director role at Newton Insight, Lynch was director of media evaluation at Kantar Media and TNS. He is also a visiting lecturer in media insights at the University of Westminster.
