Media News People UK

UK – Data marketing insights company, Ebiquity, has announced that Nick Manning is leaving his position as director of the company after 10 years.


Manning (pictured) joined Ebiquity – then known as Thomson Intermedia – in 2007 and, along with Michael Greenlees, built it into a global network of media bench-marking and consulting businesses.

A media industry veteran, he founded media agency Manning Gottlieb in 1990 with Colin Gottlieb. It was bought by Omnicom in 1997 and became part of OMD UK Group in 2002 when it was renamed Manning Gottlieb OMD. In 2004, Manning was made chief executive of OMD UK Group.

He was a key contributor to the ‘Prescriptions, Principles and Processes for Advertisers’ recommendations for the US Association of National Advertisers in July 2016.

Michael Karg, Ebiquity Group CEO, said: "Nick stands tall in the media industry and has played a central role in building Ebiquity’s capabilities and raising its profile. His legacy is a company which is increasingly sought out by advertisers and industry bodies for its independent perspective and rigorous data-driven analysis. I would like to thank Nick for his contribution to the company and our industry."
