Unmetric, the company that helps global brands understand how they stack up against their competition on social media, announces the appointment of Rick Liebling as Head of Global Marketing along with other corporate growth milestones. With over 15 years of success in international marketing, Liebling will lead Unmetric’s marketing initiatives across brand, product and content communication strategies.
Prior to joining Unmetric, Liebling served as the first-ever Creative Culturalist at Young & Rubicam Advertising, where he provided counsel clients such as Foot Action, the USOC, Hillshire Farm and Dannon regarding consumer behavior and how brands and consumers interact with culture. Liebling’s successful experience in marketing has allowed him to become an influential industry leader that has worked with the likes of MasterCard, Gillette, Sony Ericsson, Verizon, General Mills and Diageo.
“I was blown away by both the quality of the product and the team at Unmetric,” said Liebling. “The ability to unlock competitive intelligence is crucial for brands and agencies alike and I look forward to the opportunity to help Unmetric further serve the needs of the Fortune 500 companies it works with.” They have recently brought on global clients such as Frito-Lay, American Airlines, NARS Cosmetics, ITC Hotels, Sapient, Wieden+Kennedy, Deep Focus and Changi Airport Singapore.
In addition, some notable client renewals include: Zocalo Group, Under Armour, Lowe’s Home Improvement, MRY, GroupM, Volvo Cars and Dow Chemical Company.
