Nikola Small 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.
Magnite boasts an increased headcount and omnichannel strength due to the combined experience across all digital ad formats and recent investment in its APAC data center.

James Young, MD of Australia at Magnite said, “It’s been an exceptional year leading Magnite’s Australian team and we’ve gone from strength to strength with our Australian revenues increasing greater than 60% and ad spend up more than 70% year on year.”
