Initially drawn to Playwire for our footing in the gaming arena, Scott first joined the Playwire team in 2013 as a Network Operations Coordinator. "At the time, I was really into video games and I still am, although I don’t have as much time to play, so that was a big selling point for me." However, he quickly learned more about the types of problems that Playwire was trying to solve, and "being an analytical brain", Scott knew without a doubt that Playwire was the right fit.

Fast forward nearly 10 years, Scott currently leads our Yield Operations team as Senior Vice President. In his role, Scott spends his days overseeing and evaluating "our existing yield strategy and consistently finding ways to make it better for our publishers." For some, it's tricky to understand exactly what that means. What does a yield operations team do and/or how does yield management fit into the ad tech landscape?

In Scott's words, "[as yield experts], we demystify all the myriad of settings, configuration options, and so on to provide [the publisher] with the yield tactics that lead to the best revenue for your website," continuing, "At the end of the day, our goal is very simple: let Playwire handle your inventory, we’ll handle all the complicated pieces that come with it so you can focus on your branding, your content and growing your website."

Beyond the immense role that yield operations plays in the success of our publishers, Scott notes the thing he believes distinguishes Playwire from other ad tech companies as being, "the culture," continuing, "It’s really fun seeing different groups of people interact with one another, and our HR department has tons of activities all the time from scuba diving to bingo to trivia. There’s something new every week, and that part of the culture really fascinates me."

An Immense Asset to the Team

"Over the 8 years that I have worked with Scott, I have watched him prove time and time again just how immensely valuable he is to the team,said Playwire CRO, Anthony Berrena, continuing, "I always marvel at his ability to study data and patterns and come up with new and unique ways to leverage the billions of data points that flow through our platform daily."
