Ogury, a globally active company focusing on personified advertising, has announced the promotion of Geoffroy Martin (pictured) from COO to chief executive officer (CEO). Martin succeeds Thomas Pasquet, co-founder of the company for the past eight years. As chairman of the board, Pasquet will be in charge of promoting Ogury’s mission and vision outside the organization. Jean Canzoneri, also a co-founder, will remain chief strategy officer, reporting directly to Geoffroy Martin.
An industry veteran, Martin has more than 25 years of experience in tech companies. Before joining Ogury, he served as general manager and executive vice president of Criteo‘s growth portfolio, significantly growing the retail media division. Before that, he was CEO of Art.com, now the world’s largest online art retailer. In his new role, Martin will lead the entire company, defining and implementing Ogury’s strategy, mission, vision and culture to accelerate its global expansion.
“What Ogury has built is nothing short of exceptional: our technology has put consumer privacy at the center from day one,” Martin commented. “I firmly believe that personified advertising is the best sustainable solution for the open Internet. As the new CEO, I am honored to continue to build on this solid foundation and lead the company into a bright future.”
