Jonas Jaanimagi: Head of Media Operations and Strategy, REA Group

Jonas joined REA Group from the UK as Head of Media in 2012. His digital career began in 1999 when he joined a start-up financial publisher with only three people, which eight years later had grown to over 100 staff. In 2007 Jonas founded and launched WebAds UK, a specialist business and finance digital ad-sales house representing publishers exclusively as a niche high-net-worth proposition. After successfully growing and driving this smaller business to profitability, Jonas was head-hunted to run the Ad Operations and Publisher Solutions teams at Hi-Media, Europe’s largest independent ad network with access to more than 150m unique users. Prior to joining REA, Jonas worked at Videology in the UK as the Director of Product Management.
