VidMob, the leading platform for Intelligent Creative, is announcing the addition of three industry luminaries to their Board of Directors: Former Facebook, HP and Visa CMO Antonio Lucio, Graham Holdings Chief Communications Officer Pinkie Mayfield and Ford Pro Global CMO and former Samsung CMO Wanda Young. The new board members are joining at an important growth phase for VidMob, and at a time when the industry is looking toward data-informed creative as the next frontier in high performing marketing. In February, VidMob completed their Series C financing to accelerate global expansion.
“It’s incredibly exciting and validating to VidMob’s vision that Antonio, Wanda and Pinkie are joining our board. Their collective expertise and industry influence will be instrumental to VidMob as we scale into a global enterprise that serves world leading brands and agencies with Intelligent Creative,” said Alex Collmer, Founder and CEO at VidMob. “We set out to build an operating system to evolve creativity for the better, and I can’t think of three people more well-suited to help ensure we live up to our mission.”
