Vdopia hires Jason Shulman, Farzad Jamal and Narayanan Iyer

Vdopia, mobile video and media advertising company, announced the appointment of several top talents to further strengthen its leadership ranks: Jason Shulman, Farzad Jamal and Narayanan Iyer.

“Vdopia is moving ahead at a great pace and building a world-class team, which has expanded dramatically over the last year to match pace with our growth," said Preetesh Chouhan, VP- APAC, Vdopia.

Jamal has come on board as Vice President, Europe.  Jamal will be based in the company's London office and will be responsible for expanding Vdopia's business across Europe. Previously, he was at the OpenX (London) where he has been Commercial Director of EMEA for the past two years.

Jason Shulman has joined as Senior Vice President, Sales at the company's San Francisco office.  Shulman will be responsible for growing North America media and programmatic revenue for the company.

"There are very few companies with global scale in the mobile video advertising space and Vdopia is on that short list. There was no saying ‘no’ to such an opportunity, especially when Vdopia is rolling out programmatic offering,” said Shulman.

Narayanan Iyer joins Vdopia as Senior Director of Finance, a newly created position. Iyer will be based in Fremont and is responsible for company's finances. A veteran with 20 years of experience, he’s worked with Rocket Fuel, Mint and Intuit. Prior to Vdopia, he was working with Quri (San Francisco), a retail intelligence company.

"Jason is an amazing strategist of the digital century—helping brands take best advantage of the growing programmatic landscape.  Farzad is a creatively driven revenue executive and been able to produce big digital ideas in Europe. And Narayanan is hardcore numbers guru," says Saurabh Bhatia, co-founder, chief Business Officer, Vdopia Inc. "Together they will help Vdopia build on the momentum we’ve been gaining. We are thrilled to welcome them to the team.”

Vdopia’s clients include Coca-Cola, Walt Disney, McDonald's, Intel, Microsoft, Ford and hundreds of other leading global brands.
