  1. Our CEO, Diaz Nesamoney, has a bit of the “rockstar” status in the personalization of digital marketing. He literally wrote the book on this subject (https://www.jivox.com/book/). He is a diehard serial entrepreneur–co-founded his first startup, Informatica, in the 1990s. He grew the company from a startup to a publicly-traded company, in 1999, with a market cap of $5+ billion and sold his second company to IBM Diaz’s key strengths include pioneering cutting edge technologies to improve business efficiencies and help customers innovate and manage change. In all his startups, he has demonstrated an uncanny ability to anticipate market shifts. For example, at Jivox, the first shift happened in 2015 when the rest of the adtech companies were focusing on simple A/B testing of creative, Diaz made a big bet by investing heavily in building a new data-driven, AI-powered platform to automate personalization at scale. Doing so, he gave Jivox a 3-year head start to solidify a barrier to entry while expanding our tech prowess in personalization. The second shift occurred around 2016 when Jivox competitors focused on the publisher/ agency revenue model, Diaz bet on a shift to the brand-direct business model and invested heavily in building a SaaS revenue model with self-service product delivery to engage directly with brand customers. This paid off handsomely when brands turned to inhousing their advertising technology. Diaz’s vision is enabling the world’s largest brands to engage every consumer in a personalized and relevant way using technology and to do it at scale. Think about that: building a 1:1 communication with each consumer through personalized messages and offers–all based on consented 1P data about each consumer in the right context (geo, language, time of day, day of week, season, weather, pollen count, etc.) Last but not least, Diaz leads our teams of employees and customers with empathy, which was acutely felt during the pandemic. And that’s why, in spite of the COVID crisis, our platform enabled customers to shift messaging from selling products to crisis management/ sharing empathy in just 24 to 48 hours (https://www.jivox.com/dco-case-studies-brand-agility/). And in spite of this crisis, under his leadership, our company remained profitable and our teams of employees and customers intact all through 2020.

  2. We’ve seen organizations that aspire to build a culture that encourages management to be approachable and one that does not limit employees by the bounds of hierarchy. However, very few manage to attain this goal. Fortunately, for someone like me who was optimistic about finding a company like this to work straight from my MBA, Jivox was a pleasant surprise. A couple of months of working at the company made me realize that its affable culture is set right from the top and exemplified by the CEO himself. Even though Diaz has an impressive history of entrepreneurship prior to founding Jivox, in person, he does not carry any of the celebrity that is commonly associated with renowned start-up founders. I have worked with him on many projects over the past four years. With Diaz, no problem is too small and no question too irrelevant, and this aspect of his leadership makes everyone across the company feel valued and heard. The year 2020 was an acid test in leadership for most companies around the world and for us at Jivox it was no different. Diaz opened all channels of communication to keep everyone apprised of our business and the steps that were being taken to help us move forward. At a time when many businesses were announcing layoffs and furloughs, Jivox went against the tide to retain its employees and take care of their physical and mental well-being as much as possible. The flourishing state of our business at the end of 2020 was a testimony of Diaz’s ability to lead during a crisis; we had grown not just our revenue but also our workforce. Although Jivox is an American company, Diaz has been mindful of building a culture where all employees feel included and cared for. Nowhere was this more evident than in the first half of 2021 when India, where I work from, was hit by the most unexpected and brutal wave of Covid-19. There was no team member in the India office who was unaffected by the second wave of the pandemic in some way; most of us either lost a loved one or knew someone who had. At this time, Diaz organized a fund-raising campaign across all offices of Jivox to provide relief to India, a gesture that made employees here feel that they had an extended global family that cared for them and their community.

  3. Diaz’s key strength is his vision for transforming digital marketing and advertising, using machine learning and automation to personalize creative and content, remove inefficiency in creative production, and increase media performance using a technology that can scale personalization. Under his leadership, Jivox customers saved $642 Million in Dynamic Creative Production cost, with over $1 Billion overall Return on Investment. Diaz is a serial entrepreneur. He was previously Co-founder, President, and Chief Operating Officer at Informatica (NASDAQ:INFA), which he took from a startup to a publicly traded company in 1999. Informatica pioneered data integration software as a category and is now the market leader with more than $1 billion in revenue and a $5 billion market capitalization. Before founding Jivox, he founded Celequest and served as its CEO until early 2007, when the company was acquired by Cognos/IBM. Celequest introduced the market’s first business intelligence and analytics appliance, a disruptive innovation that led to its acquisition.

  5. Diaz is a true technocrat. He is able to look around the corners in terms of where the industry will move and is therefore able to pioneer solutions before the problem hits the mass market. I believe that a company’s culture always flows top-down. Diaz (and others in the Jivox leadership) have created a strong culture of mutual respect, accountability and excellence which makes employees strive for the best while always being kind and respectful to all around us.
