Former Facebook Vice President of Global Marketing Solutions, U.S. Tom Arrix, who left the social network last July, will help advise one of its Strategic Preferred Marketing Developers, as he was named to the board at Ampush.
Ampush said Arrix will advise on client strategy, strategic partnerships, and market and product development.
While at Facebook, Arrix helped develop marketing relationships with companies including Walmart, American Express, JPMorgan Chase, Coca-Cola, Amazon, Procter & Gamble, Samsung, EA Sports, Lionsgate, and General Motors.
Prior to his time at the social network, Arrix worked with Univision and CBS SportsLine.
Arrix said in the release announcing his appointment to the board:
Ampush is raising the bar by taking the complexity out of buying ads for brands and direct-response advertisers on the industry’s biggest native ad platforms like Facebook and Twitter. During my time at Facebook, I witnessed Ampush drive major ROI (return on investment) across multiple industries through Facebook advertising. This trend will continue on other native platforms as the industry evolves and Ampush continues its upward growth trajectory. I’m thrilled and honored to work with Ampush’s founders, some of the industry’s true rock stars.
Ampush Co-Founder and CEO Jesse Pujji added:
We look forward to working closely with Tom. We have gotten to know each other well in the past several months, and Tom shares our values and vision. His deep experience and knowledge of media sales, Facebook advertising, and native platforms will be integral in taking Ampush to the next level.
