As initially reported in OnlineMediaDaily on January 8, former Yahoo and Thrillist executive Adam Chandler has joined Boston-based mobile ad network Jumptap as senior vice president for sales, overseeing brand sales and reporting to COO Frank Weishaupt. He will be based in Jumptap’s New York office.
Chandler most recently served as executive-in-residence at venture capital firm Lerer Ventures. Previously, he spent eight years at Yahoo in various positions, including leading the company's U.S. Hispanic ad division and managing Yahoo U.S. revenue and advertising display partnerships.
Chandler has also served as chief revenue officer at Martini Media, as well as president and chief revenue officer at men’s lifestyle site Thrillist. He is the third Yahoo veteran Jumptap has hired in less than a year, including Weishaupt and CTO Bob Hammond, as the company prepares for an IPO later this year.
Jumptap closed a venture round of $27.5 million in July for a total of $122 million in funding to date.
