SpotX Bumps Buckley To COO Role; People With Leasure


The RTL Group-owned video advertising platform designed to bridge TV and digital video on a global scale has promoted its three-year Chief Revenue Officer to the role of COO.

At the same time, there’s a new “Chief People Officer” at SpotX.

Taking the COO role is Sean Buckley, a seven-year company veteran who became Chief Revenue Officer in January 2017, following a 2 1/2-year tenure as SVP/Global Revenue.

He joined SpotX in June 2013, after nearly five years at IDG TechNetwork in business development roles.

Since January 2019, he has sat on the RTL AdConnect advisory board.

Meanwhile, it is Jeanne Leasure who is now SpotX’s Chief People Officer. She rises from SVP/People and will be responsible “for developing workforce plans that align with the company’s overall strategic objective, mission and values.”

This includes expanding initiatives around learning and development, as well as diversity and inclusion.
