LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 17, 2017) - Nativo, the leading native advertising technology platform, today announced the appointment of John Haake as its new SVP of Marketing. Haake has led a prolific marketing career in advertising and technology for more than 25 years, having previously served as the CMO at Flashtalking and held leadership roles at Rocket Fuel, HookLogic, Turn, and MediaMind.
"We saw native advertising as an opportunity to create a healthier digital advertising ecosystem for marketers and publishers," said Justin Choi, CEO at Nativo. "John's industry experience and passion for better advertising driven by data, content, and genuine respect for the value exchange with the consumer align perfectly with the story Nativo wants to tell in 2017 and beyond."
At Nativo, Haake will be responsible for leading the company's go to market initiatives as Nativo continues to provide comprehensive native solutions to publishers, brands and agencies. Prior to joining Nativo, Haake served as the CMO at ad serving firm Flashtalking, where he evangelized the adoption of programmatic creative. Prior to that, Haake spearheaded the repositioning of [x+1], guiding the data management platform to a successful acquisition with Rocket Fuel.
Earlier in his career, Haake held several executive marketing positions focused on establishing and solidifying category leadership positions and bringing new product innovations to market.

"Savvy advertisers are discovering the benefits of being less disruptive of consumers and providing true value through relevant and engaging branded content," said John Haake, SVP Marketing at Nativo. "Nativo and its publisher partners are leading the charge to a new age of better, more effective advertising by helping brands reinforce this implicit pact with their consumers. My job is to help tell this story."
