Nick O’Connor (MD)

I have been in media in some form since I was a teen.

I sold ads in the holidays at school & then university. When I graduated I joined VNU before moving to the Economist Group. Information Strategy Mag was an international business magazine that looked at the early days of the information revolution. It sparked my interest!

In 1999 I found myself at a cross roads, I joined old school media recruiter The Davis Company and never looked back. TDC had been trading since the 1980’s and I learned the biz of recruitment from some of the best. I have been passionate about digital media recruitment since 1999 at The Davis Company, Xchangeteam & now the Digital Talent Network. I have recruited for the great and the good of the industry.

As social recruiting takes hold & resourcing methodology changes I believe that we have use the tools at hand but also hold onto human element. We are nothing without the network which is evolving on a daily basis.

Outside of the DTN I am a proud dad, sometimes runner & fan of all things food and wine.
