The audio analytics platform Veritonic has hired audio and media tech veteran Korri Kolesa to fill the company’s newly created position of Chief Revenue Officer. She will be responsible for continuing the growth of Veritonic’s audio analytics platform used by advertisers and publishers to measure the impact of ad campaigns.
“Veritonic is quickly becoming the new industry standard for advertisers and publishers who want to measure and maximize the effectiveness of audio advertising,” said Kolesa in a statement. “I’m excited to be a part of this cutting-edge team, and look forward to growing Veritonic's revenue—and helping empower our customers to do the same.”
Kolesa spent the past two years at the podcast platform Art19, most recently as its Chief Operating Officer. Art19 was acquired by Amazon in June. Prior to that, Kolesa spent two years at the podcast ad rep firm Midroll Media, including as its Chief Revenue Officer. She earlier worked at MySpace, Fox Interactive, and InterMix Media.
“With years of experience in monetization, media and audio, her role will be crucial in establishing Veritonic as the industry standard for measuring audio effectiveness, campaign performance and competitive intelligence across podcast, radio and streaming ads,” said Veritonic in the announcement.
“As the demand for Veritonic's audio analytics continues to surge, Korri’s leadership will be instrumental in enabling us to capitalize on this momentum and bring us to the forefront of audio intelligence and measurement,” said Veritonic CEO Scott Simonelli.
