Established in 2014 to help support the growth of video within digital display advertising, the Video Advertising Council is forms an essential part of the IAB’s industry leadership.

Newcomb said he’s excited to contribute to the council, and looks forward to representing non-standard digital formats and the vibrant contribution they make to publisher ecosystems, especially in video.

“As digital continues to evolve, we’re seeing non-standard formats emerge as strong branding platforms, while also delivering strong engagement. This effect is only heightened when video is added to the mix, and having a chance to contribute to industry leadership around digital video display is privilege.

“The IAB do important work to find consensus and meaningfully tackle industry issues, and I’m thrilled to be a part of that,” Newcomb continued.
