Innovative Mobile Ad Platform Expands Sales Team to Meet Demand of Impressive International Growth
NEW YORK and TORONTO, March 1, 2016 /CNW/ -- MediaBrix, the industry leader in delivering emotional brand connections, announced today the opening of a Toronto office with the hire of industry expert Brian Fields as vice president of sales, Canada. With his comprehensive experience in Canada's digital advertising industry, Fields will help expand MediaBrix's international impact on quality mobile advertising, focusing on developing key sales relationships with agencies and brand marketers in the Canadian market.
"MediaBrix's approach to emotional advertising on mobile can make a real difference in the Canadian market, and Brian is an ideal and experienced industry professional to establish our mission there," said Ari Brandt, CEO and Co-Founder of MediaBrix. "We've always grown carefully and strategically at MediaBrix, and we are confident that Brian is a stellar addition to our talented and dedicated team."
The opening of a Canadian office follows a key partnership in the region with Ontario-based messaging app Kik, announced in January, as well as an expansion to the United Kingdom in the past year. Since its founding in 2011, MediaBrix has experienced impressive growth, from a team of six to more than 70 employees who are delivering dynamic and immersive brand messages to users at peak levels of engagement. MediaBrix's management team is comprised of industry-leading innovators in the media and ad-tech spaces whose mission is to drive innovation in a sector where user engagement has been largely ignored.
"I am very excited to join the MediaBrix team and bring true innovation to the Canadian advertising market," said Fields. "MediaBrix's user-driven approach to helping brands build real, valuable relationships on mobile is unlike anything I've seen in my years in the industry. I'm looking forward to contributing to that mission and aiding in the company's global expansion."
Fields brings with him more than 15 years of experience in digital marketing and advertising, with a specialty in emerging markets. Most recently, Fields founded Hoszu Inc., a Toronto-based consultancy helping ad-tech companies establish international footprints. Prior to Hoszu, he served as vice president of Canada at Mode Media, a content discovery and advertising platform. He was responsible for the Canadian office's consistent year-to-year growth and helped position other international offices for success, including Australia and China. Fields joined Mode Media from digital representation firm BBS Media, of which he was co-founder and managing partner, driving strategy and company vision.
