Sam Turner

Lead, Strategy & Planning

Sam has been in media for over 5 years now.

He joined Merkle in 2018 in the Paid Social department, working across a number of verticals as he developed a strong in-channel knowledge. Discovering a passion for more strategic thinking, he moved across into a role in the S&P team in 2020, focusing on Partnership and Influencer strategy, before taking on cross-channel planning clients to build broader strategic expertise.

Through internal and client work he has developed a breadth of knowledge of media partners and facilitated discussions between various media owners and Merkle’s largest client accounts.

Outside of work Sam loves live music and you’ll most likely find him at a gig or festival.
