Vdopia appoints Daniel Ahiakpor as VP business development

MUMBAI: Online mobile and video platform Vdopia Inc has announced the appointment of Daniel Ahiakpor as vice president for business development.

In the newly created position, Ahiakpor will be responsible for striking and developing key publisher and mobile-app partnerships for the company. He will be based in Vdopia’s New York office.

Vdopia Inc co-founder and COO Chhavi Upadhyay said, “Daniel is an accomplished advertising technology professional with over 12 years of experience in sales, business development, publisher relations, and ad operations with a focus on video. He will be an important addition to our New York operation as we ramp up our mobile video programmatic buying and selling capabilities.”

Vdopia VP APAC Preetesh Chouhan said, “Daniel is an accomplished advertising professional. He will play a pivotal role in Vdopia’s efforts to bring automation to its ad solution to further streamline the process of optimising mobile video. The recent inclusion of talented industry players like Daniel in our team will further boost the growth wave that Vdopia has been riding on.”

Prior to this role, Ahiakpor was the head of publisher platform sales from Adap.tv, an AOL company in New York, where he led the company’s North American publisher platform business.

Ahiakpor added, “I joined Vdopia because of its solid global position at the intersection of mobile and video. With its proprietary .VDO format, Vdopia brings innovation into the equation by helping marketers target and deliver creative branded video messages across mobile and tablet devices, with greater ease and efficiency. Vdopia is also bringing automation to its ad solution to further streamline the process of planning, buying and selling mobile video.”

Ahiakpor has held various roles in operations, ad technologies and sales development over several years for Yahoo and for Fox Interactive Media. He was a senior member of the publisher business development team at ScanScout, a technology-driven video ad network which was sold to Tremor Video in late 2010.

Ahiakpor began his career with Providian Financial (now owned by JPMorgan Chase) as a project coordinator for marketing operations.
