LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Toluna, the leading global insights technology and panel provider, today announced the appointment of Scott Axcell as Chief Marketing Officer. As part of his role, Scott will be responsible for the strategy, execution, and overall success of Toluna’s global marketing efforts, overseeing product marketing, brand, creative, growth marketing, and marketing operations. He will also join the company’s executive leadership team.
Scott is a dynamic marketing leader who brings over 25 years of experience in successfully growing brands and scaling companies. Early in his career, Scott held brand marketing roles at Nestlé and Heinz in London, UK before taking a senior global branding & communications role at LeapFrog in San Francisco, California.
