And Toronto-based Blue Ant has announced the hire of Jason Cason, former director of partner development at Machinima, who will head up a new New York-based digital sales office.
Joining Cason is Jillian Bove as an account executive, as Blue Ant targets international advertisers as the exclusive sales representative for Omnia Media’s 550 million monthly digital video impressions.
