In-game advertising platform, Anzu.io, has appointed Josh Schmiesing as a strategic advisor. Josh has experience leading brands spanning 65+ countries in the areas of research, marketing, advertising, media, and digital production. Recently, he led WPP’s Global Microsoft Relationship, including global digital marketing for Xbox.

Anzu’s in-game advertising platform has created a marketplace for brands to safely reach a massive global gaming audience at scale and for gaming companies to establish new revenue streams that respect the game play. I am thrilled to join such a dynamic team and bring my passion for building strategic business relationships to help Anzu reach their next level of growth.
