Expanding the limits

Yaccarino has driven changes in the advertising industry on several fronts, including advocating for less reliance on Nielsen measurements and the introduction of a digital platform called One Platform, which makes it easy to buy ads across multiple media, in order to to better compete for advertising with social networks and traditional media companies.

“It is worth noting that he has built a great team that has created many innovative products and has supported the growth they have experienced”said Brian Wieser of the strategic advisory firm Madison and Wall. “He has promoted the sector on many fronts, trying to improve it.”

“She knows better than anyone what it’s going to take and I think for advertisers and buyers, the question really is, is she going to have free rein to do all of that or is it going to be the same old thing (with Musk)?” .
