AUCKLAND, 7 April 2014 – Hypermedia announced today that Belinda Freeman has been appointed Chief Executive Officer. Ms Freeman will lead Hypermedia’s shopper marketing consultancy, including path-to-purchase analyses and insights, execute creative strategy and manage the company’s retail contracts.

Ms Freeman has a proven track record of developing successful, globally recognised, multi-market, shopper and retail research programmes and strategies.

Hypermedia’s clients will benefit greatly from Ms Freeman’s international expertise gained from her work with leading FMCG manufacturers and retailers such as Unilever, Heineken, Nestlè, Coca-Cola, Wal*Mart, Tesco, Boots, Dixons Store Group, The Co-op and more.

Ms Freeman acknowledges that while it is difficult for brands to communicate directly with shoppers, Hypermedia enables clients to effectively secure space to get in front of their shoppers at the critical decision point.

“Hypermedia gives companies the unique ability to amplify their brand at point of purchase, thanks to a powerful partnership with Countdown and other retailers,” she says. “I look forward to strengthening the agency by working with our clients and the team to expand the reach of, and to future-proof Hypermedia’s results proven offering.”
