"The Internet delivers measurability and targeting, but now, through contextual video advertising, it is even closer to realizing its true potential. I'm thrilled to apply my knowledge of television and online advertising to Vibrant Media and push the medium even further for brand advertisers," said Deutrom. "Vibrant Media understand the power of engaging audiences with a rich, interactive media experience, and I'm ready to take it to the next level throughout Europe."
