John Frelinghuysen, Digital Video Marketing Leader, to Serve as IAB Publisher-in-Residence

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB)
has named digital marketing veteran John Frelinghuysen as the trade
group’s newest Publisher-in-Residence to tap into his insider
perspective on the digital video advertising landscape. Most recently,
Frelinghuysen served as Executive Vice President for Digital Media at
Disney/ABC Television, where he led digital product, technology,
business development, and strategy for the ABC Network, Disney Channels,
and Freeform—leveraging his deep insights into how publishers and brand
marketers can navigate fundamental shifts in consumer video viewing
behaviors to reach engaged audiences on a variety of screens and
platforms, from OTT to mobile devices.

In this new advisory capacity, Frelinghuysen will work with IAB and its
Digital Video Center of Excellence to address pressing issues and ensure
robust opportunities for advertisers and publishers in the video arena.
Today, most digital video advertising relies heavily on TV-centric
formats and creative, which risks alienating viewers and slowing growth
in ad-supported consumption and inventory. At the same time, promising
new digital ad models still lack effective standards, measurement, and
scalability. In tandem, there has been a dramatic change in consumer
viewing habits, with the majority of U.S. adults (56%) owning a
Streaming Enabled TV—a 56 percent rise from just two years ago.

Prior to joining Disney, Frelinghuysen served as Senior Vice President
of Strategy for AOL, leading corporate strategy and helping secure major
deals with Verizon, NBCU, and Microsoft, among others. Previously, as a
senior strategy consultant with Bain Company and Booz Allen Hamilton
(now Strategy), Frelinghuysen led several key initiatives for IAB,
including the launch of Making Measurement Make Sense (3MS), Building
Brands Online, and Digital Pricing Benchmarking. Frelinghuysen served
from early 2016 until recently as an IAB Board Member.

« John offers a powerful point-of-view as a premium, video-focused
publisher at Disney and at AOL, plus years of experience supporting the
IAB as a strategy consultant in driving brand advertising and
measurement improvement,” said Randall Rothenberg, President and CEO,
IAB. “We look forward to benefiting from his keen insights, analytic
skills, and ability to rally brand marketers, media buyers, publishers,
and other key stakeholders. »

“Digital video—with $9.1 billion in U.S. advertising spending in 2016
alone—is perhaps the single greatest opportunity for industry revenue
growth, and it is a privilege to team with IAB to spur the medium even
further,” said Frelinghuysen. “As both a publisher and strategy
consultant, I have been passionate about enhancing the consumer
experience and promoting new advertising and measurement models in
digital. We need to coalesce around these critical areas in order for
video to deliver on its tremendous promise.”

This marks the second time that IAB has invited an industry pioneer to
take part in its Publisher-in-Residence program. Peter Naylor, currently
Senior Vice President, Advertising Sales, Hulu, and Chairman IAB Digital
Video Center of Excellence Board, was the first to serve in this senior
advisory role in November 2013.
