“Mobile advertising spending will only accelerate as virtually every brand has an app,” Kiriakis commented. “I am excited to help build on all of the amazing success the Adjust team has accomplished over the past 8 years in onboarding such great clients and helping them achieve their marketing goals.”
Buermann, an industry veteran and former entrepreneur, will be responsible for managing Adjust’s global sales operations, working closely with sales, marketing and finance to boost efficiencies. She joins Adjust from mobile data and analytics platform App Annie, where she was Territory Director for Central & Eastern Europe, Nordics, Russia & CIS. Prior to that role, Buermann held leadership positions at Hewlett-Packard, Oracle, Salesforce, Scopevisio and Adobe.
“Mobile phones touch every part of our lives and are where change is going to happen,” Buermann commented. “I look forward to helping further Adjust’s success in the dynamic mobile marketing space by enabling our sales teams around the world to do their jobs more efficiently.”
