“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.”

“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.”
