Social video ad solutions company Unruly Media has hired Richard Kosinski as its new US president. He will be responsible for shepherding the company to its “next phase of growth in the Americas.” Unruly says Kosinksi has been hired to tap into the growing market for social video advertising, as evidenced by the surge in popularity of Vine, Instagram Video, and the (inevitable) launch of Facebook’s video ad product. He will advise on business strategy and new product development. In the US, Unruly has offices in NY, Chicago, Detroit, SF, and LA.
Most recently, Kosinksi was SVP of sales at Quantcast. Prior to that, he spent four years at Yahoo as VP of political advertising.
