Ken Bond
Chief Executive Officer

Ken’s track record of innovation and growth began as an early hire at RevContent , a leading content recommendation platform. Ken solidified his business development bonafides while at RevContent, architecting deals with Fox News, Path, and other top publishers and advertisers.

Building on his success, he became the Director of Publications for WAM! Media Group, where deals with premium publishers like Microsoft, The Blaze and The Examiner helped the CPC network grow to more than two billion monthly ad impressions and paved the acquisition by Yabukka.

In 2013, after a stint with the browser plugin AdPeak, Ken and a partner successfully set out to build a top 100 web site on the back of proprietary technology that identifies and amplifies high-performing content. Realizing that they cracked the code on some of the most challenging problems facing open-web publishers, Ken focused efforts on building revenue attribution and media optimization technology that would later become the foundation for the AdRizer platform.

During his time as CEO, AdRizer has achieved rapid growth and was named by Inc. magazine as the nation’s fastest-growing software company.

Ben Barokas
Advisor

Ben’s journey as a digital visionary and angel investor began in 2000 at AOL where he trafficked display campaigns. He eventually led the ad inventory management team and ad product development for six years until the Time Warner merger.

Ben’s stints at The Fifth Network and JumpTV set the stage for his co-founding of Admeld, a pioneering real-time bidding media platform that introduced a new paradigm of programmatic media buying.

After a high-profile acquisition by Google, he remained at Admeld to run its global marketplace development team. During his tenure with Google, Ben began to focus on the unique challenges open-web publishers faced and felt there were healthier solutions for publishers to increase revenue. This led to his founding of Sourcepoint, the first content compensation platform designed to support a sustainable media ecosystem through a fair value exchange between publishers and consumers.
