Speaking about the appointment, Shuttlerock founder and CEO Jonny Hendriksen said: “At Shuttlerock, we know that agencies and brands have unique challenges that need to be addressed as they face a mobile advertising market that is relentless in its speed and scale.

“Scott’s deep background with global agencies and working with global brands will be an asset as the company continues to grow our relationships around the world.”

McBride added: “I have been on the front lines of digital marketing since its inception, and I can clearly see the opportunity for Shuttlerock to offer agencies and brands a new breed of creative enablement.

“It takes a significant amount of financial investment, time and resources to produce a single piece of creative, and we have the ability to use that one still image or video to rapidly create dozens of new high-performing mobile video assets. Our goal is to help agencies and brands amplify their creative campaigns in a way that’s efficient and effective.”
