VIOOH, the leading premium global digital out of home supply-side platform, today announced the appointment of Hervé Brunet as a member of its board of directors.
Hervé Brunet is succeeding Philip Thomas, who is retiring from the VIOOH Board, where he has been a Non-Executive Director for the past three and a half years. Thomas has been with VIOOH since its inception, acting initially as its interim Chief Executive Officer.
Hervé Brunet is a highly respected business leader, recognised for his ad tech expertise and experience across Europe, the US and Asia. Previously, he has held numerous international senior management positions and was the CEO and co-founder of stickyADS.tv – an SSP and ad server video platform that helped premium video publishers design and run their own digital video advertising marketplaces. Brunet then held a General Manager position and head of TV and Video advertising at Comcast. He is now an investor and a partner at 50 Partners and Galion Project.
“I would like to thank Philip for his impactful contributions that helped take VIOOH from an idea and a project, through to the creation of the company it is today. Philip played a large role in helping VIOOH continue to develop and grow in so many markets thanks to his invaluable guidance,” said Jean-Christophe Conti, Chief Executive Officer at VIOOH.
“Hervé was a natural choice to become a VIOOH board member and I’m confident that he will provide exceptional guidance and oversight to VIOOH’s leadership team. With his many years of experience within the ad tech industry, Hervé will be instrumental in supporting VIOOH as we continue to align digital out of home with the wider programmatic ecosystem, and will help advise the strategic direction for VIOOH’s continued strong growth,’ added Conti.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to help lead this great board,” said Hervé Brunet, Non-Executive Director at VIOOH. “I look forward to leveraging my industry experience, serving on a diverse collection of boards, to help drive continued growth for VIOOH and value for all stakeholders,” added Brunet.
