NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2016) - STAQ, the integrations platform as a service (iPaaS) for digital media, today announced the appointment of Gian Lombardi to the executive team. Lombardi will serve as Chief Revenue Officer starting immediately. Lombardi has extensive digital advertising sales management experience, and deeply understands the intricacies of the digital advertising market. Lombardi comes to STAQ from White Ops, where he served as Chief Revenue Officer. Before that, he spent more than 7 years leading Eastern Sales for YuMe, and several years at PointRoll, where he lead North American Sales. Lombardi was also an early employee at DoubleClick, eventually holding the role of VP of Sales for the company.
"I couldn't be more excited to join STAQ," said Lombardi. "The number of different platforms and data sources companies interact with in digital media has grown exponentially, and the resulting complexity makes it harder for sellers to be profitable and buyers to be effective. STAQ not only eliminates manual labor, it empowers sellers to get the most from their inventory and for buyers to make faster and smarter decisions, creating much more efficient and profitable businesses. As someone who has been at the forefront of several important digital media innovations, it's clear how valuable STAQ is for the market."
STAQ streamlines reporting and analysis through integrations with hundreds of platforms across the entire digital advertising ecosystem.

This combination ensures that STAQ can continue to grow quickly now, and experience profitability while we mature as an organization."
