NEW YORK, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MediaBrix, the industry leader in delivering emotional brand connections that drive user receptivity in mobile, announced today the hire of mobile product veteran Josiah Klebaner as Senior Vice President of Product. Klebaner joins MediaBrix after leading mobile product strategy at eBay and American Express, and will be focused on driving product strategy, continued innovation, and streamlining execution. The announcement comes just weeks after MediaBrix's expansion into the Canadian market with the hire of industry expert Brian Fields.
Klebaner brings with him 20 years of rich product experience across financial services, e-commerce, advertising, and education. Most recently, Klebaner served as Director of Mobile & Integrated Products at eBay, where he defined the company's mobile strategy for their third-party e-commerce partners and led the online display advertising product group. Prior to eBay, Klebaner was the Director of Mobile Product Management for American Express, leading the team behind the company's smartphone and tablet apps and driving year-to-year growth of installs by 67 percent and MAUs by 52 percent. He also served as Director of Global Email & Mobile Capabilities and Senior Manager of Membership Rewards Online in his time with American Express.
"Josiah's extensive experience in mobile product innovation and strategy will help drive forward MediaBrix's mission of building emotional connections between brands and consumers," said Glen Sussman, Chief Operating Officer of MediaBrix. "We're excited to be attracting such top-tier talent as we continue to grow, evolve, and re-define what is possible in mobile advertising."
Klebaner's hire continues a year of company focus on technology and product, following the addition of veteran Christopher Beach as Senior Vice President of Engineering to bolster innovation in mobile-first advertising. The past year has also been one of growth for MediaBrix, expanding its international footprint by opening offices with key hires in Canada and the United Kingdom. MediaBrix's consistent growth was recognized by Inc. as one of the 5000 fastest growing companies in America. MediaBrix continues to build upon a superior mobile advertising solution, lauded by Entrepreneur as the one of the best entrepreneurial companies in America and by the Stevie American Business Awards as gold-winning Innovation of the Year.
