"I am honored to accept the Stevie Award for Executive of the Year on behalf of all BrightRollers across our 11 offices worldwide," said Sacerdoti.

This is an exciting time to be in digital video advertising, and I'm eager for BrightRoll to continue to lead the industry forward."

The Stevie Awards recognize BrightRoll's leadership in the industry. Success in the evolving world of video advertising comes through empowering advertisers and publishers with the tools and resources needed to achieve their digital video goals. To that end, Sacerdoti has led BrightRoll to introduce several industry innovations, most significantly The BrightRoll Exchange (BRX), the industry's first auction-based digital video marketplace, providing advertisers and publishers with access to the largest pool of video ad inventory available.

At its highest level, BRX facilitates the continued flow of ad dollars from traditional media to the Internet. In addition to Sacerdoti's recognition for Executive of the Year, BRX was named a finalist for Business Innovation of the Year in the Other Services category.
