Australian Joshua Lowcock is Chief Digital and Innovation Officer at UM in the US and UM’s global Brand Safety Officer. Based in New York, he’s spearheaded development of a Media Responsibility Audit of social media platforms alongside initiatives to try to make businesses see the billions they spend on advertising within the same frame as corporate social responsibility – and says it’s gaining traction “faster than even I imagined”.
