Bill joins WhizzCo with two decades of experience, first working for major publishers including CNET and CNN, and then providing development solutions and support to publishers at Google, PubMatic (NASDAQ: PUBM), Taboola (NASDAQ: TBLA), and Jeeng (PowerInbox).

Pamela comes to WhizzCo with extensive advertising and marketing experience, first at the Israeli office of global advertising agency BBDO, and then for a series of successful digital technology startups, including Midbar Tech (sold to Macrovision), Payoneer (NASDAQ: PAYO), SafeCharge (acquired by Nuvei) and ironSource (NYSE: IS), where Pamela served as the company’s first VP Communications.
