Undertone Hires Ben Flaccus to Lead Retail & CPG Commerce Division


Undertone, a Perion Network Ltd. (Nasdaq:PERI) (TASE: PERI) company and leading provider of intelligent, high impact advertising solutions across all platforms, screens, and devices, today announced Ben Flaccus as Managing Director of Retail. In this role, Flaccus will lead the retail group within Undertone across the continuation of product development and partnership to bring turnkey solutions to retail and CPG partners. Prior to joining as Managing Director, Flaccus served in a consultancy role for Undertone for two years.

Flaccus brings nearly two decades of deep and broad experience in advertising technology and data, including leadership roles in both startups and established companies. He played a key role in developing a solution to demonstrate the efficacy of video in delivering performance against omnichannel outcomes while helping retailers deliver metrics they care about, including return on advertising spend (ROAS).

“Ben’s contributions to innovative product design are driving up to 19x returns for retail advertisers. His ability to help develop and deliver personalized solutions that our clients can activate and immediately demonstrate performance against, makes him the perfect person to lead Undertone’s Retail & CPG Commerce division,” said Dan Aks, President of Undertone. “Ben has a deep understanding of how more relevant, dynamic content, messaging and offers drive the outcomes that matter most to advertisers while yielding unique and actionable insights. He will be a tremendous asset to our growing team.”

“Undertone has a great reputation and name recognition in market,” said Flaccus. “I’m excited to build on this foundation with a new suite of retail and CPG solutions. We can now combine Undertone’s High Impact, cross-channel ad formats with best practices around personalized and localized content, dynamic messaging and real-time offer curation and distribution. The result is more relevant, full-funnel ad experiences that deliver consistent performance against omni-channel sales goals and drive ROI.”

Among Undertone’s core competencies is its ability to create engaging, interactive, and high impact advertising experiences across display and video and combine those experiences with a set of best practices around personalization, localization, and integration of real time offer content to drive omnichannel outcomes that retail and CPG partners look for. Undertone leverages proprietary data to inform not just who they talk to but also what they say to the consumer to deliver relevant offers across all channels, including CTV that users will engage with and see.

“Ben has been a tremendous asset to the Undertone team since joining as a consultant two years ago, helping to innovate and develop cross-channel retail and CPG solutions for our clients” said Doron Gerstel, Perion CEO. “He is passionate, informed, respected and will be an inspirational member of our team as we continue to grow this division and provide solutions that bring real value and ROAS to our clients.”
