NEW YORK, January 20, 2015 – Teads Inc., a leading global video advertising platform, announces that its CMO Rebecca Mahony was recently recognized as a 2015 Woman of Influence by New York Business Journals. The program honors women who have excelled in their industry and utilized their learning’s to motivate others to pursue their passions and achieve their potentials. Mahony’s honor will be formally presented at a luncheon reception, held this January 22nd in Manhattan.
At thirty-two years old, Mahony is among the youngest executives and few females in the advertising technology industry. She receives this honor after having demonstrated years of proactive mentorship to females breaking into media, both within and beyond the workplace.
Mahony is a committed to Advertising Women in New York, serving as a mentor to young women looking for guidance, career progression and perspective in advertising and media. Last September, Rebecca recruited and sponsored a fellow female employee at Teads to receive the organization’s Student Relief honor, which was awarded unto her at a TedXWomen conference.
“Rebecca shines as a brilliant worker and open-minded leader,” Teads’ CEO Bertrand Quesada comments, “She is determined to support the health, well-being, and success of each individual among her global marketing team. Her ability to outperform the scope of her daily duties, while remaining an approachable role model to all at Teads undoubtedly qualifies her for an honor of this stature.”
