Mobile ad and in-app monetisation platform, Vungle, has appointed Jeremy Bondy as CEO. Bondy, previously Vungle’s COO, succeeds Rick Tallman, who moves to the role of strategic advisor for Vungle.
Tallman joined the company as COO in 2015 and was appointed CEO in 2017. Under Tallman’s leadership, Vungle has experienced substantial growth and is positioned as a leading player in the in-app mobile marketing space. He steered the company through its 2019 successful acquisition by Blackstone, as well as its recent purchase of machine-learning-based marketing optimisation pioneer, AlgoLift.
Bondy, who joined Vungle in 2014, has held a number of senior sales and operational roles at the company, most recently as COO. During his tenure, Bondy has been responsible for setting up and scaling Vungle’s global commercial organisation, establishing teams in Berlin, London, Beijing, Seoul, Singapore, Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles.
For many years, Jeremy has been a key contributor to Vungle’s success, and it is my honour to pass over the reins to him. His work spearheading the company’s global expansion, together with his unmatched understanding of Vungle’s business, customers, people and culture, make him the ideal person to lead the company into its next chapter.
