Adaptive streaming technology company, SeenThis, has appointed Michael Krawczyk as its commercial director for Australia and New Zealand.

Krawczyk moves from his prior position at News Corp as national head of digital client growth and capability. His experience also includes roles at WaveMaker and MEC.

Commenting on his new role, Krawczyk said: “I’m thrilled to be leading the commercialisation and driving the adoption of this fantastic technology across the leading agency groups and their client partners in Australia and New Zealand.

“The instant-loading, high definition video, image and interactive rich media content that SeenThis streams to display ads is not only beautiful, impactful and more sustainable than old download technology. It represents the first real innovation in creative delivery of display ads since we swapped flash for HTML-5 in the early 2010s.”

He continued, “We use streaming technology in nearly every other aspect of our digital lives. Digital TV is streamed, sport is streamed, music is streamed, gaming is streamed – it’s a leaner, more efficient tech, so it makes no sense that legacy download technology is still used in display ad delivery.

“When clients see the performance lifts they can achieve, throughout all stages of the purchase journey, coupled with the lighter carbon footprint, all via a simple switch of creative tech, it really becomes no brainer to adopt.”
