Mark Zagorski, CEO at Telaria said: “We’re delighted to have Bill and Carole join Telaria to further solidify our global leadership team and help extend our video platform footprint throughout EMEA. Cord cutting is becoming a global phenomenon, and as advertisers seek to connect with audiences in new OTT environments across Europe, having experienced leaders to help publishers take advantage of this opportunity is essential.”
Swanson said: “Telaria has built a leading position in connected TV and premium video in the U.S., and I’m looking forward to leveraging that expertise and unique technology for the growing CTV/OTT market in EMEA. With transparent business models and technology that simplify challenges and unlock programmatic video opportunities for publishers and brands, Telaria is perfectly positioned to accelerate growth in the region as more brands and agencies look to access cord cutters and premium video takes off.”
Dobourg concluded: “I’m excited to join Telaria at this strategic time as television and digital video undergo significant changes in France. I see enormous potential for Telaria’s proven technology in digital video and connected TV in this region, and I look forward to contributing to the company’s accelerated growth.”
