UKOM (UK Online Measurement) is the industry body owned jointly by the IAB and AOP and supported on the board by the IPA and ISBA, responsible for delivering the industry governed and recognised standard of multi-platform online audience measurement. There is a robust contract between UKOM and its audience research partner comScore, who were appointed for at least 3 years in April 2015.

Julie Forey says: "With the wealth of data available today, it’s a very exciting time to be working in the field of digital & audience measurement – I look forward to embracing new measurement challenges at UKOM as the digital media market becomes increasingly complex and its rapid evolution continues.

Ian Dowds, UKOM CEO says: “We are delighted to have Julie on board as UKOM’s Director of Insight, she brings a depth of expertise and a real enthusiasm for the kind of insight that the UKOM endorsed comScore data can provide.
