Kieran graduated from The University of Manchester in 2009, with a BA (Hons) degree in Philosophy. After starting his career with Global Radio, Kieran joined Microsoft in September 2014 as an Agency Lead, before transferring to AOL as part of the large digital display partnership between the two companies. In his current role, Kieran looks after Oath’s relationship with WPP and manages a team of nine Agency Partners and is responsible for contributing 50% of Oath’s total agency revenues. Kieran has managed successful long-term strategic projects with a range of key clients. He exceeded revenue targets in every quarter of 2017, despite tough market conditions and significant integration challenges faced from bringing the AOL, MSFT and Yahoo businesses together. Kieran developed and implemented a Joint Business Partnership with Mediacom UK, covering product accreditations, a formal framework for Oath Insights, research partnerships and data access. Kieran also devised and launched an internal employee progression programme aimed at retaining and motivating high potential candidates, the ‘Oath Academy’ – designed to accelerate junior staff’s paths to becoming future leaders.
