Shaughnessy spent the past 15 years at the software giant, most recently serving as global vice president of sales, marketing and services in the advertiser- and publisher-solutions group. Prior to that, he was general manager of Microsoft’s digital-advertising-solutions business group.

Mixpo says its “mission is to make video display advertising—a more effective display ad—accessible to local advertisers, large or small.”

“We are privileged to add an industry expert and senior executive of Bill’s depth and caliber to our board” Mixpo president and CEO Anupam Gupta said. “His experience of developing leaders, building organizations that scale and delivering world-class online advertising solutions is unparalleled. Bill’s operational expertise will be invaluable as we continue to build on Mixpo’s position as a leader in the online-video-advertising space.”
