The Mars Agency has strengthened the executive team bringing its Marilyn martech platform to life by adding Peter Gent as Director of Data Partnerships.
In this new role, Gent is tasked with building out The Mars Agency’s data portfolio by forging new partnerships and enhancing existing relationships. He’ll also serve as the agency’s “resident expert,” helping internal teams optimize the value gained from these data partnerships to drive even greater commerce marketing success for our clients.
“Peter has an ideal blend of data expertise, communications skills and relationship-building experience,” said Jake Berry, EVP/GM of the Marilyn team at The Mars Agency. “He will be instrumental in helping us create an even stronger partner ecosystem to fuel the analytics power of Marilyn.”
The data-driven Marilyn martech platform is designed to measure “Total Business Impact,” the full contribution that commerce marketing makes to a brand’s bottom line. Clients who leverage the platform improve the performance of their commerce marketing efforts by an average of 21% by leveraging richer insight into program performance and optimizing their marketing investments.
Gent has more than 10 years of experience at sales and marketing-focused data companies. Most recently, he spent eight-plus years as Director of Data Partnerships at The Trade Desk, where he established, fostered, and managed numerous relationships with global industry partners across the ad tech ecosystem. He also led internal product initiatives and integrations that helped the media buying platform achieve the goals of clients and partners.
