SAN FRANCISCO, CA – April 1, 2010 – BrightRoll, the leading branded video advertising network, announced today that Daryl McNutt has joined the company as vice president of marketing. McNutt joins BrightRoll during a period of rapid growth and will guide the company’s marketing, research and reporting.

Our customers and prospects will benefit greatly from his knowledge and understanding of the space.”
“At both comScore and Specific I saw firsthand how video advertising is helping advertisers reach well-defined audiences at a fraction of the cost of television buys,” said McNutt. “As more and more advertisers flock to online video, the ability to justify and measure the value of their spend is critical. BrightRoll’s massive reach and track record with respected brands positions the company for continued growth, and together with the current team, I look forward to building on its early market leadership ”
