Kubient Appoints Leon Zemel Chief Product Officer
Kubient, a cloud-based software platform for digital advertising, today named digital advertising industry veteran Leon Zemel as its new chief product officer.
Most recently the senior vice president of programmatic and platform product at DoubleVerify, Zemel joins Kubient with more than 15 years as a product innovator and business leader in the ad tech industry. Zemel led the development of one of the first demand side platforms (DSPs) and data management platforms (DMPs) in the industry at x+1, where he was a key senior executive responsible for scaling its technical products before it got acquired for $230MM.
He has also driven product innovation for large scale ad tech companies including MediaMath in addition to leading all programmatic product at DoubleVerify.
In addition to Zemel, Kubient also recently added two senior level team members:
- Larry Mlawksi, an ad tech veteran who spent his career building and scaling teams, joins the company as director of client success.
- Alexis Bryers, a former sales director at GeoEdge, joins as vice president of KAI partnerships.
“We’re thrilled that the hard, industry-shifting work the Kubient team has undertaken these past few years has become a beacon to the best and brightest in the field,” said Paul Roberts, Kubient founder, chairman, CSO and interim CEO. “Attracting top talent such as Leon, Larry, and Alexis will only bolster our efforts in commercializing KAI, the Audience Cloud, and the other world-class solutions we offer to our partners and customers. With each of them bringing their deep, advanced knowledge and expertise to the table, we will be able to benefit from their talents for years to come.”
