Mobile advertising platform InMobi, recently announced that Bob Bahramipour, former CEO of Gigwalk, is to join the company to lead Global Business Development efforts.
InMobi offers a range of advertising products, including its Mobile Native Advertising Exchange
He’ll report to Abhay Singhal, CRO and Co-founder, InMobi, who says:
“Bob shares our passion for user experience and brings a unique combination of digital media, ad technology, and mobile experience to the Company. We are thrilled to have him join us at a time when we’re witnessing unprecedented growth in North America.”
Amit Gupta, Co-founder and President, North America and Device Solutions for InMobi, adds:
“We love people who are scrappy, who’ve taken risks, who can span both the big and small picture and who don’t hesitate to get their hands dirty. Bob is all of these things and he’s a perfect addition to our strong North America team and leaders at the company.”
Bahramipour previously co-founded an e-Commerce start-up that later was sold to Amazon. He led Yahoo’s Search business development team and held positions at YuMe and TRUSTe. More recently, he was CEO of Gigwalk. Bob Bahramipour says:
“The founders and I were like minded from the minute we met where we turned a short meeting into a marathon session that lasted three hours. Before we knew it, three whiteboards were filled with ideas on how to continue to enhance the mobile discovery experience for users. It’s very rare to be part of a company which is already a giant and yet continues to push the envelope into a new user-first territory. This is an exciting time for InMobi and I’m looking forward to working with this talented team.”
In addition, InMobi recently announced a collaboration with Rubicon Project to add a video inventory to the InMobi Exchange. It expands the company’s vision for a no-banner mobile advertising future and continues its efforts to grow its programmatic exchange.
