Media Leaders Join TVision Advisory Board to Accelerate Innovation in TV Measurement

Tenured Industry Veterans of MAGNA, Samsung, Nielsen, Essence, and WarnerMedia 

Enhance TVision’s Deep TV/Video Measurement Expertise

New York --  July 30, 2019  - TVision, the leader in TV engagement metrics, today announced five new additions to the company’s Advisory Board. Agency and brand veterans David Cohen, Adam Gerber and Jay Altschuler join TV measurement executive Lynda Clarizio and media research pioneer Howard Shimmel — bringing deep industry expertise and customer insight to TVision. 

Using cutting-edge technology, TVision measures what was once unmeasurable – how people actually watch TV. TVision delivers meaningful data that advertisers require to make informed and relevant investments in TV. With TVision’s data, advertisers report greater return on their TV ad investments and improved business outcomes. As the market adopts TVision’s truly unique TV Attention data, these industry leaders provide invaluable insight for how ad buyers and networks can leverage this data. 

“The industry needs to move to holistic video measurement that creates a comparable view across the ecosystem. Attentiveness in the living room has long been discussed but difficult to measure. TVision brings to the market second-by-second campaign measurement with their advanced Attention metrics, adding a new dimension to the measurement conversation," explains David Cohen, former North America President of IPG’s MAGNA Global. “I’m delighted to advise TVision as the company brings TV ad measurement into a new age.”

“Having overseen hundreds of millions of dollars in TV ad budgets, I know exactly how valuable TVision data can be to advertisers looking to optimize their campaign spending,” explains Jay Altschuler, a veteran media and marketing leader of Samsung and Unilever. “Advertisers using TVision’s second-by-second, person-level TV engagement metrics have an unparalleled advantage in the market. Brands can finally perform always-on campaign measurement — optimizing spending in a way that they never could before. TVision is a game-changer for media-marketers, and I’m excited to lend my expertise to help take the media industry to the next level.”

These five industry leaders bring impressive resumes and vision for TVision — as well as the future of the TV advertising industry:

  • Jay Altschuler is the former Vice President of Integrated Marketing at Samsung and he previously lead media efforts at Unilever. He brings deep experience in creating winning media campaigns to TVision. 
  • David Cohen is the former President of North America for IPG’s MAGNA Global. At MAGNA, Cohen and his team revolutionized how media and marketing were measured, purchased and optimized, a key tenet of TVision’s performance metrics platform.
  • Adam Gerber is the Global President of Media at WPP’s Essence, in addition to a former Disney ABC executive. Adam brings expertise on both the buy and sell side of advertising to TVision. 
  • Lynda Clarizio is the former President of Nielsen US Media with a background in the media and advertising measurement industry that TVision is active in.
  • Howard Shimmel is formerly Chief Research Officer at Turner Broadcasting (part of WarnerMedia). He brings an even deeper expertise in cross-platform analytics and measurement to TVision.

“At TVision, we are helping advertisers measure and optimize in ways never before possible,” explains Luke McGuinness, President of TVision. “We are honored that these industry leaders recognize how TVision is revolutionizing TV advertising and are excited to have them help guide our business.”
