Explain your role at DataXu. What do you do?

I’m head of Account Management for our Spanish office. I’m in charge of new businesses and keeping our clients loyal. Also to teach our prospects and existing clients, in real time, in order to get them mature in our universe.

How did you land at DataXu?

I was working at a network and our Managing Director started talking about RTB (Real Time Bidding), ad exchanges etc. I decided to investigate more about what the RTB world was, and was convinced that this was the future of advertising. I started working at Mexad, which was acquired by DataXu in 2012 and rebranded in 2013.

We are the leaders of a huge change that is emerging in the advertising market.
