Amobee, a leading global digital marketing technology company serving brands and agencies, today announced the expansion of its global leadership team with the appointment of Masatsune Shironishi to Country Manager of Japan. Shironishi will report to Domenic Venuto, Amobee Chief Operating Officer.

As Country Manager of Japan, Shironishi will be responsible for leading the combined Amobee and Videology businesses for Amobee Japan. Shironishi has more than 25 years of experience in linear TV and digital video advertising, digital media, online database and banking sectors.

“Shironishi is a respected industry leader who will be instrumental in driving Amobee’s growth in Japan,” says Domenic Venuto, Amobee Chief Operating Officer. “Amobee is expanding globally with the acquisition of Videology, and I look forward to Shironishi’s contributions to Amobee’s evolution as we scale our best-in-class technology to serve as a strategic partner to marketers worldwide.”

Most recently serving as Commercial Director, Japan at Videology, Shironishi joined Amobee following the company’s recent acquisition of Videology. With more than two decades of experience in the technology industry, Shironishi brings a valuable insight and background, working closely with brands, agencies and broadcasters to develop long-term strategies for success. He holds a Master of Business Administration, with merit, from The University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom.

“With Asia-Pacific’s digital marketing spend growing faster than any other region, the opportunity for Amobee—one of the largest independent digital marketing platforms in the world—is endless,” says Shironishi. “As Country Manager of Japan, I look forward to introducing Amobee’s leading technology to brands, agencies and broadcasters across the region.”

The addition of Shironishi to Amobee’s global leadership team follows Amobee’s acquisition of Videology.
