Interview summary

The ad tech landscape has long been crowded and cluttered, but many—including Erik Requidan, vice president of sales and programmatic strategy at digital advertising firm Intermarkets—consider header bidding a catalyst for weeding out the weaker players. eMarketer’s Lauren Fisher spoke with Requidan about the strain header bidding places on buy-side platforms and what they are doing to combat it.
