LOS ANGELES – September 23, 2015 – Rubicon Project (NYSE: RUBI), a global technology company powering the only independent advertising solution to automate the entire digital advertising ecosystem, today announced that the Los Angeles Business Journal named Todd Tappin, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Rubicon Project, the 2015 CFO of the Year in the public company category at its 9th Annual CFO of the Year Awards honoring finance professionals in Los Angeles for their ongoing efforts as outstanding financial leaders.
“Rubicon Project was founded on the premise that everything starts with our people and that great people will drive the company to achieve great things — Todd exemplifies this belief in the way he strives for excellence and inspires our team each and every day,” said Frank Addante, CEO, Founder and Chief Product Architect at Rubicon Project. “Todd’s invaluable blend of experience with public and private companies, his leadership from the boardroom to private equity and his recognized stature as a leading figure in our industry, make him one of the most talented and multifaceted leaders in finance today and we could not be more proud of his recognition as the 2015 CFO of the Year.”
In his dual role as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer at Rubicon Project, Tappin is responsible for the administrative operations of the company, strategic development, finance, M&A, legal, and the execution of the company’s operating and financial plan while also preparing the company for its incredibly successful 2014 initial public offering. The company’s 2014 IPO, which one CNBC host hailed on air as “the perfect IPO,” helped to spur the explosive growth the company continues to experience today.
Prior to joining Rubicon Project, Todd built an impressive 25 year career as a recognized leader in the business and financial communities, leading companies from start-up and early stage, through IPO and onward, to become successful large and influential public companies.
“I am truly honored to have been recognized for this esteemed award, especially among such a talented and well-respected group of industry leaders,” said Tappin. “I am proud to be a part of this exceptional company and never could have accomplished a fraction of what we have been able to do without the collaboration and support of our incredibly talented team at Rubicon Project around the world.”
