Luca S. Paderni

Vice President, Research Director serving Marketing Leadership PROFESSIONALS

Luca primarily contributes to Forrester's offerings for Marketing Leadership professionals. He is an expert on how senior marketers can take advantage of new advertising, communication, and service technologies to bolster their brands' health, deepen customer relationships, and, ultimately, increase sales.

His current research centers on upcoming trends and transformations in the media and advertising space that lead to increasing media fragmentation. By investigating the ways consumers have embraced digital experiences and platforms, Luca and his team help clients redefine their strategy models and better serve consumers.

He lends a strategic yet pragmatic perspective on the key trends affecting publishing and media buying; content strategy; the future of online, offline, and connected TV; and the blurring of the lines between product, service, and communication. Luca also leads our research on marketing mix optimization and guides CMOs and marketing leaders in their efforts to establish analytic systems to inform marketing spend and ROI.

Previously at Forrester, he was a Technographics® analyst and principal consulting analyst.

Previous Work Experience

Before joining Forrester, Luca was head of industry marketing for Google in EMEA, looking after sales and marketing strategy for advertising products across verticals. In addition, Luca has more than 10 years of marketing and strategy experience at some of the world's largest and most important branded goods manufacturers, including Ferrero, Johnson & Johnson, L'Oréal, and Prada, working across Italy, France, Switzerland, Spain, and Russia. Luca is a regular keynote speaker at international marketing and media events.
