"Jon's tenured industry experience is invaluable in allowing Sabio's businesses to strategically expand and grow key relationships in its newly established New York office—one of the most important media markets in the world and the company's fastest growing physical presence," said Aziz Rahimtoola, CEO and co-founder of Sabio.

Jon's extensive buy-side experience is expected to help drive expansion of Sabio Holding's technology.

Previously, Jon also served as EVP Director, Investment & Activation at Publicis, and Director of Media Investment & Partnerships at Unilever.
Further to Sabio's preliminary unaudited consolidated Q4 2021 financial results released on January 25, 2022, which projected 77% YoY growth with between 45% – 50% of the overall revenues of the Company attributed to CTV.
