Adelaide, the leader in attention-based media quality measurement, expands its leadership team by welcoming Harmon Lyons as chief business officer. Lyons’ appointment comes in response to the growing demand for Adelaide’s cutting-edge attention solutions and underscores the company’s commitment to advancing media quality measurement.
