RhythmOne Launches its Programmatic Platform in Asia-Pacific and Latin America
Company Also Appoints Two Key Industry Players to Help Lead Global Expansion Efforts
Press Release: 10th September 2019: RhythmOne, LLC, a Tremor International company, today announces it will be bringing the infrastructure, scale and success of its programmatic platform to the Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Latin American (LATAM) markets. The announcement will also be made at the international digital marketing conference DMEXCO, following the company’s successful expansion into Europe earlier this year.
To lead international expansion efforts, today the company also announced the appointment of industry veterans Assaf Suprasky as General Manager of Tremor International’s Israel operations and Gal Topaz as Senior Vice President, Exchange Operations and Business Development. Both executives come to RhythmOne with deep experience in advanced mobile and digital video advertising solutions. Prior to his role at RhythmOne, Suprasky was CEO at personalized advertising specialist myThings, and Topaz was the CEO of programmatic group Feature Forward. Physical business development and sales teams are also now in place and active in Europe, APAC, and LATAM.
The RhythmOne Programmatic Platform is among the world’s largest brand-safe programmatic platforms. Offering technological efficiency at virtually every stage of the process, the global platform helps to effectively connect buyers to sellers and engage consumers on formats spanning video, connected TV (CTV), in-app, and display. A proven leader in the US, the RhythmOne Programmatic Platform reaches 358.8 million uniques globally* and is directly integrated with 600+ premium publishers – resulting in over 10,000 properties. The April 2019 acquisition of RhythmOne by Tremor International (AIM: TRMR) has laid the groundwork for further expansion initiatives and enhancements to the platform, including leveraging the large geographical footprint of the group’s performance division by expanding the RhythmOne Programmatic Platform into Asia.
With brand safety at the heart of its offering – supported by RhythmGuard, RhythmOne’s proprietary brand safety technology – and consistent top-tier ratings in Pixalate’s Seller Trust Indexes for programmatic display, mobile, and video advertising both internationally and in the US, the RhythmOne Programmatic Platform helps deliver high-quality solutions with large scale, and is integrated with the major international players including Google Exchange Bidding and Amazon A9. For publishers, RhythmOne offers a fully-integrated supply monetization platform (SSP) to maximize the value of inventory across desktop, mobile, and connected TV devices. Powered by an enhanced technology stack, the RhythmOne SSP provides web publishers and app developers with full access to a global programmatic ad marketplace.
“We are proud to be hosting a large-scale presence at DMEXCO this year as we take our US success and bring it to the international stage in the Asia-Pacific and Latin American markets,” said Ofer Druker, CEO Tremor International. “Our platform has massive global reach, has unique features and partnerships, and, alongside our market-specific business development professionals, we provide the perfect combination of a world-class product with local support, giving us confidence in delivering our product on an international scale. We are also pleased to welcome Assaf Suprasky and Gal Topaz to the RhythmOne team and are confident that their expertise will help bolster our success by delivering results to both demand clients and supply partners on the global stage.”
