Vice President, Advanced TV & Innovation
Matt McLeggon is Vice President, Advanced TV and Innovation at SpotX (now part of Magnite). In this role, Matt is focused on the continued growth of SpotX’s rapidly expanding over-the-top (OTT) business, as well as new initiatives in the addressable television and cross-platform space. He leads the Advanced TV and Innovation team at SpotX, leveraging technical expertise, industry knowledge, and a deep understanding of the practical applications thereof to develop and execute innovative future-facing strategic initiatives that ultimately drive revenue market share for the SpotX organization.

SpotX is ubiquitous in the world of OTT, working with the world’s leading television programmers, vMVDPs, device manufacturers, and digital-first streaming service providers. Relative to the broader world of online video, OTT media owners face a unique set of challenges — from live event monetization to merging linear and digital sales operations. At SpotX, Matt oversees a wide range of cross-functional strategies and initiatives aimed at ensuring that SpotX embodies both thought and technology leadership in addressing these evolving OTT-specific needs.

Matt has over a decade of experience in advertising technology, having cut his teeth building technology and data partnerships for FreeWheel as it grew from a small startup into an industry powerhouse that was acquired by Comcast. Prior to his time in ad tech and media, Matt earned a bachelor's degree from Brown University and an MBA from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.
