Marco Tramonte has joined 50-person independent agency Juliet as its new head of performance media. Tramonte comes to the Toronto-based agency from Red Bull Austria’s in-house marketing team.

Daily Hive welcomes new EIC

Last month, longtime editor-in-chief and one of the first staff members of the Daily Hive, Farhan Mohamed, announced he would step down from his role to focus on his family and personal life. The Vancouver-based media company has since picked the next leader for its newsroom. Darcy Matheson will become the new EIC following the end of her maternity leave in the fall. She began as a contributor to the Daily Hive in 2014 and, in 2018, joined full-time as its Vancouver City editor. Daily Hive currently sees 6.5 million unique visitors per month across the seven major markets in which it operates. While the brand is biggest in Vancouver, it’s made a number of moves and acquisitions in the last several years – including the former Torontoist, and digital news company Pressed – which have been part of its ambitions to establish itself as more of a national brand.
