Alexis Marchand, Co-founder
In 2001, Alexis joined Doubleclick (acquired by Google in 2008, currently Google Tech Solutions) and became the company’s first salaried employee in Spain. Alexis piloted the development and implementation of technical solutions for managing online advertising for both publishers and agencies across the EMEA region (Southern Europe, Middle East and Africa). In 2003, after moving to London, Alexis participated in the launch of AOL Advertising (previously Advertising.com) for Southern Europe and also later inaugurated the company’s Madrid office in 2004 to service the Iberian market.
Alexis moved back to France in 2007 to join SF Factory, a company specialized in high performance media buying and ROI-driven sponsored links. SF Factory with its obvious high-performing DNA, rapidly became one of the main web-affiliation players in France before merging with the Media agency Remind which became Remind-PHD after the acquisition of the agency by Omnicom Media Group (OMD).
In 2014, Alexis co-founds Qosmik with Snoussi Badji, both firm believers that technology, with the opportunity to streamline and automate the buying and selling of media, and the new RTB landscape will help publishers to maximise the value of their digital assets.
