July 2017 Issue: Establishment of SPI Interactive Professional Digital Company

Thank you for your continuous support of SPI News.

SPI has established SPI Interactive, a wholly owned subsidiary company focusing on digital media consultation & auditing.

SPI is a pioneer of strategic/statistical media planning/analysis and a pioneer in the media buying audit sector in Japan, encouraging optimization of marketing ROI and achievement of transparency / accountability of media planning & buying in Japan.

Having faced ever increasing needs in the digital media field such as 1) Transparency, 2) Independency & Objectivity in Data Management and 3) Education & Knowledge Development, SPI has decided to found a professional digital media consultation & auditing company with a uniquely independent / objective standpoint. Takahiro Doi, a specialist in digital media, has assumed the position of CEO.

SPI has encouraged / strengthened the improvement of digital media buying from the perspective of both cost performance & transparency, ensuring the safety & objectivity of data-management while promoting the education & knowledge development of digital marketing teams amongst advertisers.

The venture made an impact, and was soon acquired via capital tie-up with Aegis Media, a UK based agency group in 2012, becoming the Japan branch of the world’s largest digital agency group, iProspect. After Dentsu’s acquisition of Aegis Media, iProspect Japan served a significant role in Dentsu group strategic digital media management and he served as CEO until March 2017. With his eyes on the horizon, he took a new role and came onboard SPI Interactive in June 2017 as CEO.
