Masood is charged with leading DoubleVerify's expansion efforts in the region.
“I’m excited to join the DV team during a time of industry growth across Australia and New Zealand," Masood says.
“We’re partnering with brands to drive campaign efficiency and effectiveness online - ultimately, building confidence in their digital investment.”
Prior to DoubleVerify, Masood served as managing director of programmatic services at GroupM, where he launched the agency’s 'Single View of Programmatic' strategy.
Previously, he was managing director of the Xaxis and Plista businesses within GroupM, and also held senior roles at Sizmek and Amobee.
