Meltwater, a global leader in media intelligence and data analytics, today announced three new senior appointments to lead its marketing, talent acquisition and legal functions. 

Upali Dasgupta steps into the role of Marketing Director to build out Meltwater’s marketing function, manage its strategic brand direction and drive business growth via integrated marketing programs. She brings over 18 years of rich experience, spanning a range of roles at leading technology brands across Asia-Pacific, including Hootsuite, LinkedIn and Sitecore.

Alissa Sargeant has been appointed as the Head of Talent Acquisition, with over a decade of experience in HR roles at companies including Thermo Fisher Scientific and NCR Corporation. She will lead Meltwater’s efforts to ramp up talent recruitment across the region, powering up the business for a new phase of growth through exciting new initiatives.

Rounding out the new hires is Anthony Herman who joins the team as Head of Legal, bringing nearly two decades worth of experience in technology and commercial law at companies like SAP and ClickSoftware.

Upali will be based out of the Meltwater’s APAC headquarter in Singapore, while Alissa and Anthony are based in Sydney and Melbourne, respectively. The new hires come amidst a period of strong growth for the company, following a series of key acquisitions and client wins in the past year. 

“Over the past few years we’ve seen exponential growth within the APAC region, and these senior appointments will play a strategic role as Meltwater navigates its next phase of growth.” said David Hickey, Executive Director at Asia Pacific, Meltwater. “We are excited to be expanding our capabilities, and will continue to offer high-quality, bespoke and integrated solutions catered to localised needs for our current and prospective clients.”

Meltwater has spent close to US$50 million on acquisitions, including Klear, Owler and Deepreason.ai; and 10% of global revenue on research and development in a bid to integrate all of its product offerings into one advanced and intuitive solution. These enhancements are part of Meltwater’s commitment to become the leading all-in-one data intelligence provider, providing omni-channel intelligence and insights across both traditional and emerging networks. Research and development will continue to be a big focus in the coming years, with the company committed to spending in the range of 10% -12% of its revenue towards this. 

Meltwater began operations in the APAC region back in Australia in 2006, and has grown from a team of 2 to a team of close to 400 across all functions. The team has also witnessed rapid growth within the region, with a regional revenue growth of 50% since 2018.

Recently, the company was also appointed by Singapore’s Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) as an official vendor to provide mainstream and social media monitoring and analytics services for various key departments and ministries. Other key APAC client wins in the past year include the Australian Grand Prix, Maserati, FONTERRA, Cargill, Longchamp and Beam Suntory.
