Adify CEO Russ Fradin is the latest addition to our small but powerful roster for EconAds. We helped break the news late last month that Adify was being acquired for $300 million, an unexpected sale to unlikely buyer Cox Enterprises for a price that still has people buzzing, so we especially look forward to Russ's take on the digital ad deal space.
EconAds, our first seminar dedicated to advertising, takes place June 3 in New York at New World Stages from 1:00-5:30 p.m. More details at the EconAds site.
