Outbrain, the world's recommendation platform for the open web, has announced the hire of Ugur Elbasan as Senior Sales Manager. Ugur will further expand Outbrain’s advertiser and media agencies portfolio in Benelux after a record year in 2020.
Magdalena Flick, Managing Director for Benelux, Outbrain: “Ugur’s past work with Belgium’s top publishers uniquely positions her in market thanks to her deep industry ties. This, in combination with her breadth of sales experience, will allow Ugur to accelerate Outbrain’s momentum in the Benelux region.”
A well-known industry figure in the Belgian advertising industry, Ugur began her career with Produpress for the Immoweb.be site before joining Rossel, where she led the digital transformation of the Vlan brand. With 18+ years of experience, Ugur will take a leading position within the Benelux sales operation to expand and strengthen Outbrain’s advertiser and media agencies partnerships.
Nick Kalse, Head of Sales for Benelux, Outbrain:“Ugur is a perfect addition to our quickly growing team and business in Benelux. Her sales experience with La Libre Belgique, Paris Match and La Derniere Heure will reinforce Outbrain’s position in the market as a solid alternative to the walled-gardens.”
