NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Verve, the leader in location-based mobile advertising, today announced the appointment of Tim Gough to the position of vice president of insights and analytics, and Bryan Throckmorton to the role of vice president of enterprise data, effective immediately. Building upon Verve's decade-long position as the preeminent authority on mobile location advertising, these appointments demonstrate the mobile marketing pioneer's ongoing commitment to employ modern data-mining and analytic techniques and deliver sophisticated insights and consumer intelligence.
Reporting to Verve's chief marketing officer, Julie Bernard, Gough is responsible for maximizing Verve's campaign analytics capabilities on behalf of clients, providing performance analysis that is deeply rooted in action-oriented consumer observations and informs future campaign strategies and innovative tactics.

"Having worked with Tim in the past, I am thrilled to be reunited with this creative insights master," said Bernard. "Tim shares my passion for a fierce focus on delivering magical consumer experiences and elevates analytic outputs by producing them through a robust consumer lens. His command of the complex media landscape coupled with his unique ability to extract substantive meaning and insights from intricate data assets makes Tim the perfect leader to build upon Verve's strengths."
