Well, here’s the first big announcement during ad:tech Chicago, Drew Ianni was appointed Chair, Programming.
ad:tech Executive Chair Susan Bratton, who oversaw the production of ad:tech Chicago comments: “Drew and I have been friends and colleagues for years, and I‚Äôm proud to announce him as my successor,” said Susan Bratton, CEO of Cendara, Inc. and new ad:tech advisory board Chair Emeritus. “I am excited to see him continue to grow ad:tech as a premium brand.”.
Ianni has a pretty extensive backround reaching back to 1995 with CKS and most recently with Sheridan Square Partners.
Hopefully I will get a chance to meet Drew and get his take on the future of ad:tech and interactive marketing in general.
