Fetch, America's No. 1 rewards app and leading consumer-engagement platform, today announced the appointment of two accomplished executives to its leadership team who will head up sales initiatives and partner product-innovation efforts. Robin Wheeler joins Fetch as its new Chief Revenue Officer, while Jeff Lau assumes the role of Senior Vice President of Partnerships and Go-To-Market Operations.
"Robin and Jeff are some of the best and brightest minds that the adtech world has to offer," said Meredith Guerriero, Chief Operating Officer of Fetch, who joined the company in March, bringing advertising expertise from her time at Pinterest, Google, and Facebook (now Meta). "Their intimate knowledge of the space and firsthand experience building the industry's most well-known advertising solutions will be indispensable as we continue on our journey to make Fetch a best-in-class consumer engagement platform."
In her role as CRO, Wheeler will spearhead Fetch's sales organization, reporting to Guerriero. Wheeler brings deep experience from her 20+ year career leading revenue teams and driving results at major social and traditional media companies. Prior to joining Fetch, Wheeler held several leadership positions during her 11-year tenure at Twitter, where she oversaw the CPG, technology and telecom teams. Wheeler most recently served as Twitter's Vice President of U.S. Client Solutions, where she onboarded and worked with some of the country's biggest brands. Previously, at Twitter, she also headed up the social media platform's global mobile-app monetization business.
"Wes and the team have built a truly impressive business over the last decade — Fetch is a powerful platform with a massive value proposition, and there's still a ton of upside and opportunities to grow even further," Wheeler said. "The scale of Fetch's omnichannel retail data provides a unique view of the consumer that's immensely valuable for our partners in the ever-evolving advertising landscape."
Fetch is further bolstering its leadership team with the addition of Lau as SVP of Partnerships and Go-To-Market Operations. In his role, Lau will be responsible for leading key strategic partnerships and shaping Fetch's product-innovation pipeline serving brand partners. Most recently, Lau spent a decade at Google in several leadership roles across its ads business, most recently leading a global team responsible for strategy, operations, revenue acceleration, and automation in the multi-billion dollar network ads business with over 2 million partners.
"I've seen and heard firsthand how frustrated brands are with the current state of play in the advertising landscape. They're hungry for new, agile platforms that are easy to work with and can help them steward relationships with consumers in real-time, with measurement they can trust," said Lau. "With 11 million receipts scanned each day and that number growing fast, Fetch's ability to support business and marketing objectives for brands in a post-privacy world is unmatched. I am tremendously excited to help Fetch scale its industry-leading consumer engagement platform."
Fetch's signal into purchasing habits of U.S. consumers is stronger than ever, thanks to omnichannel data that spans online and in-store purchases. Using Fetch, leading CPG, restaurant and retail brands can tap into over $152 billion in annual gross merchandise value – equivalent to the nation's third largest retailer – across U.S. retail sales to influence consumer spending and shopping habits at scale.
Founded in Madison, Wis., Fetch, formerly Fetch Rewards, is on a mission to help people have fun and save money with every purchase. The No. 1 rewards app on the market, Fetch has 18 million monthly active users who have collectively submitted more than 5 billion receipts and earned more than $659 million in rewards points. Fetch is available to download free on the App Store and Google Play Store and has more than 4 million five-star reviews from happy Fetchers.

Magnite, the world’s largest independent sell-side advertising company, today announced the launch of ClearLine, a self-service solution that provides agencies direct access to buy premium video inventory on the company’s platforms. Built on Magnite’s proven technologies in deal-driven video, ClearLine significantly increases spend going towards working media, makes it easier for sellers and agencies to securely share data, and helps Magnite publishers generate more revenue and develop new sources of unique demand. Initial launch partners include Camelot, GroupM, and MiQ.
“While DSPs will remain the primary method for agencies to access premium video inventory on our platforms, we’ve heard agencies’ requests for a more direct connection in certain scenarios,” said Sean Buckley, Chief Revenue Officer at Magnite. “ClearLine delivers agencies that additional path into our ecosystem while also benefiting media owners. In the end, both agencies and sellers want options that put more media dollars to work and offer greater flexibility around data enablement and sharing. We're excited to launch with Camelot, GroupM, and MiQ as initial partners, and to get such positive feedback from media owners, who see this as another valuable avenue for driving revenue.”
ClearLine is based on technology Magnite publishers have used for years to manage their traditional direct sold demand through the ad server, extend the monetization of their first-party audiences, and manage inventory sharing through carriage deals with other media owners. Though ClearLine adapts this functionality for agencies, it benefits sellers by providing another way to generate revenue and capture unique demand. Serving sellers remains Magnite’s primary mission.
Magnite is pleased to launch ClearLine with the support of agencies and sellers:
“GroupM has long been a driver of supply path optimization, to maximize the working media and reduce supply chain costs,” said Andrew Meaden, Global Head of Investment at GroupM. “We partnered closely with Magnite to launch our GroupM Premium Marketplace (GPM) and now, with ClearLine we can activate GPM’s capabilities faster and further, allowing our clients to spend more on media and messaging and less on fees and technology costs. This is the next step to accessing guaranteed quality video supply at scale without the need for a DSP across certain kinds of inventory transactions or unnecessary hops between the buyer and publisher.”
“Getting closer to the supply side is a major component of Camelot's Advanced TV strategy and the benefits from ClearLine have been immediate,” said Mike Treon, Programmatic Strategy Lead at Camelot Strategic Marketing & Media. “Buying directly from our publisher partners within their tech stack has been extremely effective in augmenting and scaling our content-focused strategy while also creating large tech tax efficiencies. We are impressed with ClearLine’s UI, speed to insights, scale, and the granularity of buying data available to our teams.”
“Magnite is consistently at the forefront of innovation for the supply side. At LG Ad Solutions we welcome the debut of ClearLine to market as a way to bring publishers even closer to advertisers, particularly with the use of LG Ad Solutions' unique ACR data,” said Serge Matta, Head of Commercial at LG Ad Solutions. “ClearLine shines new light on the ways we can reduce complexity and improve advertising outcomes in the connected video world.”
“We see incredible value in being closer to the demand within the Magnite ecosystem, and ClearLine allows us to provide unique opportunities and measurable outcomes for advertisers, but it also helps us drive better consumer experiences,” said Travis Hockersmith, Group Vice President, Platform+ at VIZIO.
We’re Magnite (NASDAQ: MGNI), the world’s largest independent sell-side advertising company. Publishers use our technology to monetize their content across all screens and formats including CTV, online video, display, and audio. The world's leading agencies and brands trust our platform to access brand-safe, high-quality ad inventory and execute billions of advertising transactions each month. Anchored in bustling New York City, sunny Los Angeles, mile high Denver, historic London, colorful Singapore, and down under in Sydney, Magnite has offices across North America, EMEA, LATAM, and APAC.
