While at LiveRamp, Saraf was integral in efforts to create a leading identity graph for the digital world, helping combine both offline graph capabilities (email, phone number, etc.) through the acquisition from Acxiom corporation and online graph capabilities (cookies, publisher identifiers, etc.) through LiveRamp’s core systems.

“TVDataNow has benefited from the counsel from Amit since our founding and we’re super excited to have him on board full time. As we build out our premier solution for the CTV arena, Amit’s experience in product leadership and helping marketers leverage data to improve the performance of their campaigns, will be extremely valuable. We look forward to his contributions as part of our leadership team,” said Hamilton.

“The CTV ecosystem is rapidly evolving and is poised to be the next big opportunity for performance marketers. Similar to the growth of digital platforms, such as Facebook and Google, we believe CTV will enable a robust and efficient advertising marketplace that will capture the bulk of the $80 billion advertising spent per year,” said Saraf.
