As we gear up for the shifts and twists that are coming for the ad industry in 2020, we’re continuing to heavily invest in the team and technology to serve publishers well.
We want to bring to life new AdThrive products that are the best of the best and help you grow your business, so that’s why we added Evan Simeone to the team recently!
Before coming on board with us, Evan was SVP of Product Management at PubMatic, one of the Supply Side Platforms (SSPs) that AdThrive works with to connect advertisers to the ad inventory on your sites. His deep understanding of the digital ad industry and product strategy will help us take our services to the next level!
As EVP of Product Management, Evan joins our senior management team, where he’ll champion our company’s strategic direction, development, and growth. He’ll help us innovate with our existing products (like the AdThrive publisher dashboard and the tools our team uses to set up, monitor, and improve the performance of your ads) and branch out into new areas as well!
We have a lot of different teams across the company working to support publishers, and Evan will work with these teams to drive our product roadmap so we get to deliver awesome end results for publishers.
In terms of brand new opportunities, the incredible scale and quality found within the AdThrive community means we’re uniquely poised to help independent publishers grow their businesses in new and exciting ways! As the industry adapts to coming privacy regulations and cookie changes, we believe we can leverage our aggregated scale and build something great that provides substantial value for consumers and publishers. And we’re excited to have Evan helping us serve you even more. We’re incredibly pumped for 2020 and beyond!
