Drawbridge bolsters commercial leadership

November 28, 2018

Drawbridge, a leading provider of identity resolution services, announced three high-profile additions to their senior leadership team earlier this week. Drawbridge named David Pollet as its first Chief Revenue Officer, Jodi Garg as its first Chief People Officer, and John Hamilton as its new VP of Customer Success.

Why it matters:

  • Drawbridge experienced 3x growth in revenue in 2018, and hopes to capitalize on this momentum by aggressively expanding their commercial leadership.
  • The company’s ability to attract three established identity professionals from competitors in the space illustrates industry leadership.

In his past life, David Pollet was most recently tasked with bringing Neustar’s identity solution to market and has held leadership positions at companies including Bank of America, LendingTree, and [x+1] (acquired by RocketFuel). He will oversee revenue globally and lead Drawbridge’s North American sales team.

“I’ve followed Drawbridge in the market for years, and this is a unique opportunity to join an industry leader at a time when identity solutions are on the mind of every brand and platform,” said Pollet. “The potential is huge, the Drawbridge product and science is incredible, and we have the ideal commercial team to help address our customers’ pain points.”

Garg brings over 20 years of combined experience in consulting and high tech, where she has been recognized for her ability to take a business-focused approach to human capital and motivate leaders and organizations to become high-performing teams. Her most recent experience includes leading HR as a global business partner for technology and corporate functions at Equinix and SunEdison.

Hamilton joins Drawbridge from LiveRamp, where he built out and ran LiveRamp’s IdentityLink for Publishers business. He has also held leadership positions at QuinStreet, Triggit, and Inadco, and has been an advisor to adtech startups since 2012.
