JOSH JACOBS / President and Executive Chairman

A veteran leader in monetizing digital media platforms, Mr. Jacobs originally joined Maven as a consultant and co-chair.

The Maven coalition's rapid growth, scale, and performance, paired with the advertising community's reception at every level, motivated him to dedicate his complete focus to helping lead the market-changing coalition as President and Executive Chairman.

A pioneer in the programmatic media-buying industry, Mr. Jacobs has built innovative platforms and strategies on a global scale, first as an engineer and, for the last 17 years, as a senior executive operating and scaling major media and advertising brand initiatives.

Prior to Maven, Mr. Jacobs served as President/Services at Kik Interactive; global CEO of Omnicom's Accuen and President of Omnicom Media Group; senior vice president of advertising products and global marketing at Glam (Mode) Media, and vice president/general manager of marketing and technology at Yahoo!
