Roger Dunn founded and built GroupM’s commerce division before leaving to join adtech firm Criteo, which is investing heavily in the retailer media space. He has been named as the company’s Head of Retail Media ANZ.
What you need to know:
- Roger Dunn, former GroupM Commerce GM, has been named as Head of Retail Media ANZ at Criteo.
- Criteo is investing in the retailer media space as the sector is forecast to generate $50 billion in revenue next year, more than Netflix or YouTube. Criteo has commerce data sets that see $900bn in ecomm sales annually.
Global adtech firm Criteo has confirmed it has hired former GroupM Commerce General Manager Roger Dunn as its Head of Retail Media in Australia and New Zealand.
The company is expanding its retailer media services across the Asia Pacific region, in response to what it says has been “rapid growth” in the category.
Mi3 spoke to Dunn as part of an in-depth report on the retailer media sector earlier this year. Advertising placed with retailer e-commerce sites and apps is forecast to generate $50 billion in global revenue next year, more than Netflix and YouTube.
Dunn’s appointment was revealed last week, as Criteo discussed its future plans in Australia and said it no longer focused on click metrics.
“Every business is now an eCommerce business as it’s the source of almost 100 per cent of growth. Future growth lies at the intersection of media and commerce, with retailers monetising their valuable audiences, and brands unlocking growth by targeting audiences right at the point of purchase,” Dunn said in a statement. “First-party data is also at its core, offering sustainable growth and a long-term addressability solution for the future.”
Criteo APAC’s Retail Media Managing Director, Taro Fujinaka, welcomed Roger to the company as an “e-commerce leader in his own right”.

‘The great Aussie SMB reset’: The opportunity for marketers in a massive boom for small and medium businesses
Val Morgan is working with Karen Nelson-Field’s team at Amplified Intelligence to study the effect of attention metrics on cinema audiences. As James Bond’s latest film storms the global box office, it’s time for more meaningful metrics – and cinema is in a class of its own on the attention scale, Val Morgan’s Guy Burbidge writes.
The advertising industry deserves a collective round of applause. In the face of a global pandemic, near constant – and ongoing – privacy questions and scrutiny, advertisers innovated and experimented like never before, and the whole market is better for it. Success in the next (hopefully disruption-free) year will require collaboration and partnerships.
