We study our guests to discover new needs and insights, and then craft every interaction to build brand love and our business.

Leveraging our collective assets and fostering a healthy, supportive and open team culture, we deliver a holistically gratifying experience that guests can only get at Target.

Roundel is Target's entry into the media business; an advertising sell-side business built on the principles of first party (people based) data, brand safe content environments and closed-loop measurement -- proof that our marketing programs drive business results for our clients.
