Comscore said it named Brian Pugh as chief information officer, a new post at the measurement company.
Previously Comscore’s executive VP of product technology, Pugh will be responsible for launching cost-effective technology-based products that ensure that the company’s data is secure and privacy-compliant. He will also oversee the accreditation of the company's measurement services.
Pugh has spearheaded the launch of Comscore’s Media Metrix Multi-Platform, its Validated Campaign Essentials and its activation solutions.
"Brian's product vision has been at the heart of our product roadmap and success for nearly 15 years, and I am excited to have him take on an even more significant role in shaping the future of our company," said David Algranati, Comscore’s chief product officer. ■
