Albert said of the new role: “There is a huge opportunity for us to continue accelerating the smart application of data and analytics, and I look forward to combining my extensive data analytics experience with Ogilvy Australia’s talented creative minds to deliver exceptional work.”

He then went on to become founding partner and COO of leading Australian data and analytics agency, Torque Data, in 2002.

Here, he has worked with brands as a strategic consultant solving data, digital and marketing challenges.
