Gemma is a seasoned sales and marketing professional with over 14 years’ experience in the digital arena. In her current role as Head of Digital Marketing EMEA at Getty Images, a world leader in the creation and distribution of imagery and other multimedia products, Gemma is responsible for developing and driving the digital strategy for the Getty Images and iStockphoto brands across multiple digital channels.

Gemma’s career in digital marketing began client side at Early Learning Centre before she moved to Overture, the search engine tech business that at the time had distribution deals with almost all of the major search engines. Yahoo’s acquisition of Overture saw Gemma move into the Yahoo camp where she spent almost 12 years building and developing successful paid search teams, developing and launching new products and playing an intrinsic role in driving and delivering performance focused strategy for clients and agencies alike. Her extensive experience both engine and client side means Gemma is well placed to assess excellence within the industry.

When not absorbed in the world of digital she can be found running around after her two very lively young sons.
