Since 2010 he has been Head of Digital Brand Initiatives at the Interactive Advertising Bureau in New York.

“Advances in digital marketing and media have accelerated the capacity for brands and publishers to transfix consumers and transform businesses,” says Minnium, commenting on his new role. “At the same time, the rapid changes stress the ecosystem's ability to precisely understand the confluence of variables impacting consumer, brand and media connections. Those that do will have an enormous advantage and I look forward to helping clients be among them, capitalizing on Ipsos' considerable talent, tools and 40 year experience.”
