Demand Generation specialists oneninefive are proud to announce the arrival of Kav Madhavan as Business Development Director across MENA & APAC. Based in Dubai, Kav will be responsible for the success of expanding our MENA & APAC remit, expanding our reach, and ensuring success for our clients across these regions.

Expanding oneninefive’s physical presence into Dubai provides a central hub for international growth, in turn facilitating easier communications with some of the world’s most established B2B technology brands – locally and internationally. Not to mention, the opening of the Dubai office is an exciting step in the continued growth of oneninefive in the MENA & APAC regions.

Having spent the past two years as Advertising Manager in the Tech Division at Dennis Publishing, Kav led a variety of marketing solutions ranging from ABM display to lead generation, whilst also recruiting and mentoring the agency sales team. With over 10 years of experience within the digital B2B landscape working with technology brands across the globe, Kav will be set to bring an abundance of ideas and energy.

As the sales and client services team continues to expand globally, Kav’s extensive knowledge of the international publishing industry will prove hugely important for oneninefive.

 

 

Kav Madhavan, Business Development Director – MENA & APAC, states:

“As part of OneNineFive’s global expansion, I’m very excited to be joining the company as their Business Development Director for MENA & APAC, based in Dubai. Coming from a B2B publishing background, I’ve had the pleasure of working with clients and agencies around the globe over the past 13 years. I’m looking forward to this new chapter in life and the new challenge professionally, helping oneninefive grow their footprint in a region that’s calling out for efficiency, transparency and above all quality demand gen solutions.”

 

 

Jordan Adams, Managing Director, states: 

“The decision to expand oneninefives’ presence into Dubai was a logical step in our international growth strategy. The UAE has clearly got a booming digital economy and with the combination of talent, of investment, and entrepreneurship as well, there’s going to be a lot of exciting emerging technology businesses in the UAE who want to take their brand globally. Outside of the UAE we already hold relationships with many of the established B2B technology brand and their agencies. By opening in the region we can look to create a central centre of excellence, that can work with our clients both locally and globally.

The Dubai office will add an important sales dimension to our operations, owing to its location, which is at the heart of an important region and critical to create balanced global growth, between East and West.”

 

 

Julie Price, Global Vice President of Sales, states: 

“We’re so excited to welcome Kav to the expanding oneninefive team in a newly created role of Business Development Director across MENA & APAC. Kav brings a wealth of B2B media publishing experience and an equally big sense of fun and passion into the role and her hire into Dubai represents the ambitions of oneninefive to explore the huge opportunities across these key regions. Kav will be perfectly placed in terms of her deep industry knowledge in demand generation and her location, to take full advantage in fostering strong new business relationships and taking the unique oneninefive proposition to a much wider client base.”

The People of oneninefive: Rosie Broad

 

 

The People of ONF is a content series that showcases the interesting, creative and all-round cool people that make up oneninefive.

Let’s get to know Rosie..

What’s your name? Rosie Broad – if we’re talking technicalities Rosemary, haha

When did you join ONF? September 2020

What’s one thing that surprised you about working at ONF? That everyone is such a family – the whole company is invested in your success and wants you to succeed. It really is an all-for-one culture.

What led you to this industry? It was actually not an industry I’ve worked in before, I came from a varied background from education to finance! I was initially attracted to oneninefive because of their company culture – hiring on attitude and training for skill! The industry at the moment has been so interesting and I’m learning a lot!

What’s your hobby or passion project outside of work? I’m super active and adventurous so usually, I would say I’m most likely off exploring somewhere new! My weekends are usually filled with seeing friends and traveling, obviously recently this has been more difficult but I’ve been exploring my new home in London. In 2022 a group of friends and I are looking to climb Kilimajaro so I expect a lot of my weekends will be hiking!

 

What’s your favorite way to unwind after a busy day? This is probably a very unpopular opinion but a really hard workout – it just makes me feel so much better and gives me a hour of me time! It probably is then followed swiftly by a G&T, haha.

What did you want to be when you were younger? An Olympic athlete, or a vet – I didn’t quite do either, haha!

How are you finding the work from anywhere lifestyle? I go through stages with it, as the world isn’t quite ready for us to actually work from anywhere just yet I’m finding the work from home life a little monotonous! I’m excited to actually work from anywhere, the office, a coffee shop, the park – I’m excited about the variety. When I first joined and everything was more open I loved it, the variety of every day and being able to see my colleagues was just brilliant – I won’t take that for granted again!

What trend do you hope makes a comeback? Leaving the house socially for more than just the supermarket and a walk, haha! Come on 2021!

What’s a trip that changed you, and why? One thing everyone learns about me pretty quickly is I’ve got quite the travel bug! I’m often exploring the world so picking just one trip is so difficult! I probably have to say my long travel trip, after completing my graduate scheme I traveled around the world alone for 8 months. It really taught me so much, about myself. I’m so much braver and much more resilient than I ever even realised or given myself credit for. It taught me the value of just being yourself, it was a trip that really helped me get over some anxiety worries and to know that there are so many wonderfully special people in the world! You learn that you don’t click with everyone, and that’s totally fine, people can be (and are) different, that’s no reflection on you it’s just everyone is different. I am now lucky enough to have friends all over the world.

What are you watching on Netflix right now? On Netflix I’m watching Ozark which is so good but my evenings are very much consumed with Married at First Sight Australia at the moment – the drama!

 

What’s one song that you’re embarrassed to admit you like? I loooooove an old school banger – kool and the gang celebration and ABBA Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! are a played often in our house.

What’s one song that isn’t played enough? Heather Small – Proud is a regular on my playlist, it takes me right back to my competing days!

Sand or Snow? Which would you prefer to holiday? This is so hard!! I love a sunny holiday and I’ve spent a lot of the last few years in the sun but there is something about a skiing holiday – You’re with all your friends, in the mountains, with a beer in your hand – such good fun!

One meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Anything Italian – Pizza or pasta and I’d be happy

How do you like your eggs? Scambled!

The People of oneninefive: Julie Price

 

 

The People of ONF is a content series that showcases the interesting, creative and all-round cool people that make up oneninefive.

Let’s get to know Julie..

What’s your name? Julie Price

When did you join ONF? November 2020

What’s one thing that surprised you about working at ONF? I was surprised by the enormous can-do attitude of everyone that works here and the ambition to get things done to drive things forward. Actually, they could be bots, I’ve never met most of them!

What led you to this industry? I wanted to move to London and media sales sounded like fun. I responded to a recruitment consultant ad in The Guardian and landed my first job and never looked back. I’m from Preston and remember my mum being shocked when I said I was renewing my annual tube pass as she thought I’d be back. That was 26 years ago!

What’s your hobby or passion project outside of work? Art though I don’t do enough of it. My creativity has generally been focussed around my kids – making costumes, doing school projects with them. I’m getting back into it, but slowly.

 

What’s your favorite way to unwind after a busy day? To walk along the river with one of the kids or to cook with my husband with an open bottle of red and loud music playing.

What did you want to be when you were younger? A book publisher – I did an English Lit degree and was a voracious reader through uni.

How are you finding the work from anywhere lifestyle? Starting a new job remotely isn’t ideal – the little questions you need an answer to become bigger deals in terms of interrupting other people and that can be a challenge for all – however patient they are (and they are!). I love the commute but would love even more to meet the people I see on screen everyday. I don’t have the best desk set up so can’t wait for a bit more space, but I do enjoy seeing my kids for lunch every day.

What trend do you hope makes a comeback? Having fun with my friends and family – I remember it from years ago but it seems to have gone out of fashion.

What’s a trip that changed you, and why? A ski holiday in Sweden around 4 years ago. I thought I’d left it too late to ever give skiing a go and we have 3 kids so that’s pretty expensive, but a good friend has a place and we’ve been going every year since. It taught me that a) I actually do like the cold and February has gone from my least favourite to my favourite month and b) being an OK ice skater means nothing on a ski slope. My kids despair when I wipe another family out, but hey – I’m still learning.

 

Quick Fire Q’s

What are you watching on Netflix right now? Mindhunter. I’m a bit late to the party on this one but it’s good. I realised a couple of nights ago that the main character plays King George in Hamilton and I can’t quite look at him in the same way, but he is incredible.

 

What’s one song that you’re embarrassed to admit you like? Never Enough – from The Greatest Showman. If you close your eyes when I belt that one out, you’d think she was in the room with you.

What’s one song that isn’t played enough? Sunday Candy – Chance the Rapper – heard it last night for the first time in ages and it really isn’t played enough and always makes me happy!

Sand or Snow? Which would you prefer to holiday? Snow if you ask me now, sand if you ask me in July. Sand is probably safer, and nothing nicer than a cold beer, a sun lounger and an afternoon of people watching.

One meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Thai green curry, without a doubt.

How do you like your eggs? Dippy (with soldiers).

TechOctopus – Why?

How did TechOctopus start?

Born in 2019, TechOctopus started out as an avenue to deliver the most up-to-date and valuable IT-related content to the leaders who needed it most. To be honest, it still is, there’s just a bit more to it now. TechOctopus has now established itself as a leading digital content solution, helping IT leaders future proof today’s business, for tomorrow’s landscape.

It is now so much more than just an email service, with the recent launch of its own online digital library – techoctopus.com – it is now far more accessible to those who need it. Filled with thousands of valuable IT-related assets it is a hub for today’s technology leaders, allowing us to target the IT professionals who are genuinely engaged in the topics and themes of our client’s content. Throw in the fact that users can subscribe to specific topics and receive curated content straight to their inbox, and I think we have ourselves something..

 

So why exactly did we launch it?

IT leaders have a few pain points, namely tracking down the content that can help them achieve their mission-critical priorities and in turn make their jobs easier. We noticed that when it came to solving this problem there wasn’t really a lot out there in the way of personalisation. So after a long hard think, we thought we’d bring something to the market that not only has a wealth of useful content but also provides the user with the content they like, when they like it, straight to their inbox.

 

 

How does all this help the brands we work with? 

TechOctopus allows for all of our client’s promotional content to be hosted online as well as sent out in our outbound demand generation campaigns, hence increasing the audience exposed to our client’s content. With the online content library frequented by IT decision-makers, this is a huge plus. We can then track whoever engages with the content allowing us to store all interactions and engagement in our intent database.

Most importantly however is the relationship between TechOctopus and its subscribers, providing a trusted and mutually beneficial relationship that results in better engagement. That’s what happens when you provide leads only with the content they’ve shown an interest in.

The People of oneninefive: Steph Fruin

 

 

The People of ONF is a content series that showcases the interesting, creative and all-round cool people that make up oneninefive.

Let’s get to know Steph..

When did you join ONF? July 2020 – The last few months have flown by.

What’s one thing that surprised you about working at ONF? How easily the team can persuade you to go to the pub after work and how supportive everyone is. Some serious teamwork going on behind the scenes 🙂

What led you to this industry? I have a corporate marketing background and wanted to use my skills to work on more marketing project/campaign management in the B2B industry. I also felt that there was a lot I could learn within Demand Gen and working closely with clients and partners.

What’s your hobby or passion project outside of work? I’m big into traveling and I love exploring new places that I haven’t been too. City/Skii /sun holidays you name it – get me on that plane. The current climate’s made this a tad difficult though. The next on my list is central & south america.

Recently, I’ve been getting back into running as well – so a half marathon next year come at me. I also love a bit of Photography or getting lost in a book. However, you can also often find me at the pub with pals (counts as a hobby right).

What’s your favorite way to unwind after a busy day? Meeting my mates for a girly catch up!

What did you want to be when you were younger? A psychologist..

How are you finding the work from anywhere lifestyle? I enjoy the flexibility, it’s nice having more time to exercise that you’d normally spent on the commute and I don’t miss the packed trains.

However, I’m a big people person, so I love that we can still go into the office to see the team. It’s also really helpful to still be able to work closely and learn from everyone in an office environment.

What trend do you hope makes a comeback? Roller Bladers. I’m not sure why they ever went out of fashion.

 

What’s a trip that changed you, and why? Moving To Australia. What started as a 3 month trip turned into 2.5 years. I saw some amazing places and met some great people. I feel really greateful to have had the opportunity.

 

Quick Fire Q’s

What are you watching on Netflix right now? The Fall – Don’t do it to yourself. I am TERRIFIED!

What’s one song that you’re embarrassed to admit you like? Keep on Movin -Five or History – One direction. No judgment, please.

What’s one song that isn’t played enough? History -One direction.

Sand or Snow? Which would you prefer to holiday? Both – Skiing holidays are always the most hilarious times and I do love a bit of apres. However, a beach holiday in the sun is the perfect way to chill out.

 

How do you like your eggs? In an omelette..

One meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Paella – Big Fan!
