“Matt’s stellar track record with publishers throughout his career will be a critical resource for 33Across as we continue our mission to help publishers navigate the ever-changing landscape of cookieless, monetization, and addressability,” said Eric Wheeler, CEO and Co-Founder, 33Across. “I look forward to Matt’s contributions in helping 33Across continue to grow and execute ahead of the market.”

“Eric and the team at 33Across have built an amazing company that has constantly demonstrated an ability to lean into change and embrace it.
