About Paul Scannell
After over a decade in various media roles across TV, cinema and display advertising, Paul joined GroupM in 2016 to support the launch of plista, the data-driven native advertising platform, in the UK market.
After nearly 3 years developing the native offering in the UK, Paul was appointed to head up a new emerging proposition around Influencer Marketing, which in July 2019 became known as ‘INCA’.

Additionally, the team have pioneered new platform and product developments, including the INCA activation platform, content boost and content extend capabilities. INCA UK has also taken a leading role to help the Influencer Marketing industry mature, as founding members of the Influencer Marketing Trade Body as well as a market-first talent partnership initiative.
Paul Scannell commented: “I am immensely proud of what we have managed to achieve in the UK. INCA has developed from the genesis of an idea, into a market leading Influencer team, helping to define industry standards and shape the next era of Influencer Marketing. I am thrilled to be taking on the new regional lead role to help build on the amazing work that is already in place across EMEA and work closely with our INCA market teams, WPP agencies and clients to ensure the continued growth and success of the business.”
