Prior to joining our team, Nate spent over 12 years as a data and ad-tech consultant for Fortune 100 brands. After working for a short time as a trader and buyer for digital advertising platforms, Nate quickly moved into management roles due to his passion and expertise for performance marketing in the digital advertising space.

Within this same time, Nate spent 6 years at Centro, where he built a team of 60+ buyers across his paid search, paid social, and paid programmatic platforms, while honing in on operations, performance, and mentoring. This experience, in combination with his consulting expertise, make Nate a strong fit to lead The Trade desk’s relationships with our data partners.
