AccuWeather Selects A New Chief Business Head


He was formerly President of Digital Turbine, a company that “powers superior mobile consumer experiences and results” for telecommunications companies, advertisers, and publishers. Now, he is the Chief Business Officer at AccuWeather.

Taking the role is Matt Gillis, who reports to CEO Steven Smith.

Gillis will lead AccuWeather’s sales, business development, and marketing teams.

Prior to Digital Turbine, Gillis served as CEO of (acquired by Human Security) the market leading cybersecurity company protecting publishers, advertisers, and consumers from malicious threats. Before that, he served as SVP of Publisher Platforms at Oath (now Yahoo!), where he led the team responsible for the global publisher-facing programmatic and monetization tools and services.

“I have been fortunate to have a front row seat to see how innovative and entrepreneurial AccuWeather is as I have built winning partnerships with this truly iconic brand over the last 20 years,” Gillis said. “It has always been AccuWeather’s Superior Accuracy that has been foundational in my daily routine as far back as I can remember. I’m thrilled to be joining Steve and the amazing team at AccuWeather so we can continue to create tailored opportunities for consumers, advertisers, businesses, and partners to make lives simpler, safer, and better.”
