Magnite (Nasdaq: MGNI), an independent sell-side advertising platform, has announced that James Young will remain as managing director of Australia.

The announcement follows Magnite’s acquisition of SpotX, which is an independent CTV and video ad platform.

The company now boasts an increased headcount, omnichannel strength due to the combined experience across all digital ad formats; and recently announced an investment in its APAC data centre.

Juliette Stead will continue to lead Magnite across the Asia Pacific and Japan in her role of senior vice president, Head of JAPAC, while Gavin Buxton has been appointed managing director of Asia.

Additionally, Nikola Small, who is returning from maternity leave, has been appointed as seller lead in Australia where she will head up Magnite’s growing publisher accounts team and develop key relationships with Magnite’s portfolio of broadcaster and publisher clients, with greater revenue responsibility.

Small has worked at Magnite and Rubicon Project over the last five years in client-facing roles.

James Young (pictured above), managing director of Australia at Magnite commented, “It’s been an exceptional year leading Magnite’s Australian team.

“We’ve gone from strength to strength with our Australian revenues increasing greater than 60 per cent and ad spends up more than 70 per cent year on year.

“Nikola’s return will further ensure we can continue servicing our clients to the fullest degree and reaching new milestones.”

Juliette Stead, SVP head of JAPAC at Magnite, said: “With James’ strong leadership at the helm of Magnite in Australia, the company will continue to support media owners and media buyers in this market as they seek a scaled, independent platform.”
