Today we’re thrilled to announce that after a multi-week voting process, with over 10,000 votes from Adweek’s readership of leading brands and agencies, we’re taking home the award for “Best Mobile Ad Network” from the 2021 Adweek Readers’ Choice: Best of Tech awards! The industry-renowned trade publication asked its readers to recognize the top providers of advertising and marketing technology for the third time. You may remember AdColony also won the same title in the inaugural awards in 2019.

“We made huge progress in 2020 as our focus on personal relationships and transparency in the face of last year’s industry-wide uncertainty helped us deliver outstanding results for clients across the board,” said Jude O’Connor, our chief revenue officer, who assumed the role last year after a long history of growth at the mobile ad network. “This award is another vote of confidence from brands and agencies acknowledging that we listen to what’s important and they trust us to enable their successful relationships with clients and consumers, now and into the future.”
“AdColony has been a trusted partner of Horizon for many years,” said Alexander Stone, SVP of advanced video and agency partnerships at Horizon Media, “They are a go-to resource for our mobile marketplace needs and a foundational piece for in-app inventory across our digital activations. We are excited to see AdColony receive this recognition and look forward to having them three-peat in 2022.”
“It was an honor to be considered a finalist alongside other industry leaders,” commented Jonathan Harrop, AdColony’s vice president of global marketing & communications, “but the votes clearly show our personal and professional touch sets AdColony apart from our programmatic partners when it comes to mobile.”
Other finalists in the Adweek 2021 Readers’ Choice: Best of Tech Awards this year were Applovin, Facebook Audience Network, Google Admob, and Kargo.
The Readers’ Choice award indicates strong support from the advertising and marketing community at large, and AdColony plans to sustain its positive brand reputation by providing ongoing value for brand advertisers through award-winning creative executions and strong relationships. Adweek’s readers are a knowledgeable, experienced group and represent our core clientele and to receive this accolade again is a testament to all of the hard work put in every day by our teams around the globe.

When we told Bill Stone, CEO of our parent company, Digital Turbine, he had this to say: “We are so pleased to see AdColony recognized for all their hard work and dedication to their clients’ successes. One of the main things that attracted us to buy AdColony was their sticky relationships with brands and agencies, and this recognition reflects that. It underscores the thesis they bring to our combined offering. We’re thrilled to create an end-to-end mobile advertising experience with Fyber and Appreciate that removes friction and delivers an outstanding return for all of our partners,” Stone continued.
We look forward to continuing to provide value and help our clients find success as part of the Digital Turbine family through 2021 and beyond. There are several areas that our product teams are continuing to explore as we build the largest mobile growth platform. We’re excited to share that news soon and look forward to claiming the title again in 2022!
