“YouTube has 47M viewers in the UK and over 260M viewers across Europe and is now arguably the most critical platform for global brands trying to reach the right audiences,” said Jones. “Pixability is one of the most forward-thinking businesses in the industry, providing brands and theiragencies with the most innovative technology to access audiences on YouTube in a contextually relevant and safe manner. Additionally, as CTV becomes an increasingly important platform in Europe, Pixability is at the forefront of bringing campaigns together across CTV and YouTube to ensure TV budgets are deployed as cost efficiently and effectively as possible.”
Hill comes to Pixability after a similarly impressive career at leading ad tech companies, most recently holding senior roles at OpenSlate, as the Managing Director of APAC, and DoubleVerify as the Sr. Group Director, Integrated Solutions APAC. Prior to that she held roles as the Head of Programmatic at InMobi Exchange ANZ and Network Ten's CTV platform 10play.
