Fubo Makes New Addition
FuboTV Inc. announced today that Lynette Kaylor has been appointed senior vice president, advertising sales. Effective next week, the veteran programmatic and agency executive will be based in New York City and Denver, and report directly to David Gandler, co-founder and CEO.
In her new role, Kaylor will lead Fubo’s North American sales strategy and ad operations as well as manage the company’s growing sales team. Kaylor’s mandate is to expand key advertiser relationships, increase Fubo’s direct and programmatic ad business and more effectively monetize connected TV (CTV) ad inventory. Earlier this month, FuboTV announced it closed the second quarter of 2022 with ad revenue growth of 32% year-over-year.
“From our early conversations, Lynette was the clear choice to lead FuboTV’s ad sales, a critical revenue stream for the company,” said Gandler. “Lynette’s agency background is the perfect fit with Fubo’s entrepreneurial culture while her programmatic experience will help grow our addressable advertising strategy. I am looking forward to Lynette helping Fubo build a world-class ad sales business that delivers data-driven precision targeting to brands across our robust streaming platform.”
“FuboTV’s extensive lineup of sports, news and entertainment content presents a wealth of opportunity for brands to reach audiences in a live CTV environment where viewers are highly engaged,” said Lynette Kaylor, SVP, advertising sales, FuboTV. “I believe in Fubo’s mission to create an interactive entertainment experience that positions the company to appeal to sports fans and advertisers alike. As an avid sports fan myself, I’m beaming at the opportunity to join the leading sports streamer during a time of pivotal growth and take FuboTV’s advertising sales to the next level.”
