Under his leadership, essential strategic decisions have been made as the start of an own AdTech stack, the launch of the leading German data alliance NetID as well as the strengthening of Studio71’s position as one of the leading global companies in the video segment. I wish Christof Wahl the best of luck and every success in his future endeavors.”
