Captify commercial operations and sales teams in France and Italy will move to Azerion as part of the agreement to support the growth of the business with new and existing client relationships and operational functions Completion of the partnership is subject to a number of customary conditions.

Captify, founded in the UK in 2011, expanded into the French market in 2015, and into Italy in 2019, building and scaling relationships with advertisers, agencies and publishers. Captify will focus resources on continuing to grow their core markets of US, UK, and Australia, as well as continuing to invest in product innovation.

Azerion VP Operations, Mickael Ferreira, said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Captify on this extension of our offering in France and Italy. Captify’s Search Intelligence product fits well with our suite of cookieless solutions on the web, in audio, CTV and DOOH and will add much value to the experience we offer our customers.”

Captify CEO Mike Welch said, “This exciting partnership with Azerion will accelerate access to our unique Search Intelligence capabilities in France and Italy through their scaled commercial footprint in those markets.
