Mandel’s credentials and reputation in the media world have been described as ‘iconoclastic’ by the trade and has held prestigious positions with NATPE, the International Radio and Television Foundation and the American Association of Advertising Agencies.
“Our focus in mobile is combining the ability to reach consumers with the ability to measure the outcome,” commented Loop CIO Edward Hunter. “Jon’s extensive background in both advertising and research give us a lot to learn from, and we’re very excited that he’s chosen to be involved with Loop.”

Mandel served in various C-level positions at MediaCom, including Chairman and co-CEO, and at Group M, until joining NielsenConnect as CEO in 2006. At NielsenConnect, he led an organization that worked to collect, analyze and report on consumer patterns and usage based on information drawn from the many Nielsen companies around the world.

They are the first to develop a solution that effectively measures engagement, efficacy and performance for any mobile application. It’s a privilege to advise them.”
