Specific Media, the behavioural targeting network, has appointed Ian Dowds as U.K. Vice President.

Online performance marketing firm, Epic Advertising, has opened a London office. The New-York-based outfit hired Rob Wilson in October 2008 as SVP and General Manager of the company’s European business. The company said the London expansion was an opportunity created out of demand, as the U.K. market is currently its second largest revenue-producing territory. It plans to continue its European expansion.
