Rupert Denny



Rupert has worked in the tech and B2B space for over 20 years, the culmination of 30 years in the business spanning both media and account management at some of the world's largest agencies.

Rupert started his career as a TV buyer at JWT longer ago than he cares to remember, the whirlwind of the 80s and early 90s ad industry saw spells at Dorlands, GGK and Leagas Delaney , gradually moving away from UK business and developing his skills at managing multi-market clients and campaigns.

He then joined Grey Advertising as a Group Account Director and built up a team of nine people servicing technology accounts across EMEA such as Oracle, Unisys, Nokia and Sonera.

Heading up the Banner Media team for 10 years, as well as sitting on the management board, Rupert oversaw clients such as Symantec, CA Technologies, Sandisk, Autodesk, Dell Partner Direct, VMWare and Riverbed.

In 2013 Rupert has brought his team into the MediaCom fold to bring skills and leadership to MediaCom Business & Tech working across clients such as DellEMC, Symantec and Lexmark.
