Recruitment drive at ad sales firm Venatus draws in 10 new staff

Ad sales company Venatus has brought in 10 new members of staff following a recent recruitment drive.

The London-based outfit made moves to hire new staff in January following some success in expanding its list of clientele, which currently includes publishers like EA, Mobafire and Rovio.

The firm said it has seen a 50 per cent increase in year on year revenue.

New faces

Omar Bakr and Alex Jardine have joined Venatus’ programmatic department after arriving from Havas Media Group and Rubicon Project.

Former Quantcast campaign analytics manager Dan Smith has come onboard as publisher operations manager, while recent graduates Matt Rowland and Muhith Anwar have made their start in the industry in the company’s programmatic and ad ops departments.

Ex-Target Media digital planner and buyer Misha Piasecka and former Mapp Media senior account manager Ryan Nash have joined the sales team as account managers.

Callan Smith meanwhile has been named as new business manager, having previously worked at Hoopla, and ex-AdColony account manager Julian Greene has been appointed network manager.

Venatus also welcomed Eve Mahony from Cubiquity Media, who has joined the PR and marketing team.

“I’m thrilled to have grown our team by ten so far this year. Each individual brings a unique level of experience and expertise,” said Venatus CEO Rob Gay.

“We have had good fortune in working with some of the best in the business over the years and hope to continue our success with our growing team throughout 2018.”
