BOSTON, Dec. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ViralGains, a pioneer in video-advertising technology solutions, has appointed two new executives to its expanding leadership team.

Widely known and respected for her vision on the future of marketing, she was recently named to VentureBeat's Top Greater Boston Growth CMOs.
Kiladis, a highly regarded entrepreneurial business innovator, creator and digital strategist, is known for his visionary clarity on the future of people and their interaction with technology and digital experiences. He has driven significant product innovations in adtech, data, apps, digital video, mobile devices, mobile games and more for companies like Fiksu and PCH.

"From the Super Bowl to the holidays, digital video has proven to be the best storytelling medium ever invented. With the explosion in video advertising on connected devices of all sorts, brands and agencies are driving significant engagement on the part of consumers using the emotional storytelling power of video," said ViralGains CEO Tod Loofbourrow. "Both Julie and Glenn bring the right kind of leadership and expertise to help ViralGains extend our product and market leadership and explosive growth."

The platform turns every story into a conversation, and connects qualified prospects with deeply engaging branded content to move them on a journey with a brand that informs them and motivates them to buy.
"In the age of personalization, video technology is getting a big second look," said Ginches. "Video has long been the preferred medium for brand-based storytelling. But until now, it's been difficult to use in a personalized way throughout the entire customer journey. By providing a platform that helps brands understand what is working down to individual interactions, we are helping to evolve an ancient art—storytelling—for the modern era."
