Adspace, the most extensive video network in the United States of America, announced the appointment of Greg Glenday as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Glenday, a seasoned executive with experience across a wide variety of media platforms, will oversee the day-to-day leadership of the company.
“We are thrilled to have someone of Greg’s success and stature join our company. He sees the great potential for connected, video-based players like Adspace to play an increasingly important role in the larger digital ecosystem,” said Peter Krieger, President and Chief Operating Officer from Adspace. “Greg brings with him a proven track record of building strong sales and marketing teams and then guiding them to success, and we look forward to his leadership in helping Adspace take the next step in its growth trajectory.”
Before joining Adspace, Greg was the Chief Revenue Officer of Shazam, where he played a central role in the company’s successful sale to Apple. During this tenure, he was also responsible for overseeing strategy, marketing, and global revenue, and helped the company achieve profitability for the first time in its history – while managing many product innovations in the mobile/digital, audio recognition, branded content, and augmented reality sectors.
Even before Shazam, Greg served as the Chief Revenue Officer at Undertone. In this role, he revamped the company’s global go-to-market strategy and increased revenue, resulting in a successful acquisition. Greg has also spent nearly 20 years at iHeartMedia as President of the Connections division.
“I cannot imagine a more important and exciting time to join Adspace,” said Glenday. “The company has a best-in-class product portfolio and a talented team. Advertisers all want the type of safe, highly engaging environment that Adspace provides. I look forward to leveraging my past experience to lead Adspace through the next phase of its evolution. This is going to be a lot of fun.”
Under his reign, Adspace is poised to expand and grow its operations.
