Amobee[1] is a marketing technology company whose Brand Intelligence technology measures digital engagement. Their unified platform enables marketers to plan media campaigns.

Amobee is a wholly owned subsidiary of Singtel. Amobee operates across North America, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Australia.


Amobee was founded in May 2005 by Gil Shulman, Saul Rurka[2] and Zohar Levkovitz.[3] It went live in June 2005. One year later, the company recruited Roger Cameron Wood, a mobile industry veteran, who established the company's U.S. presence in San Francisco.[citation needed]

In 2009, Amobee purchased media company RingRingMedia in order to expand their advertising customer base, enabling mobile media owners to sell advertising space to companies on a collective basis.[4] At the time of acquisition, RingRingMedia bought more than $2 million (£1.2 million) of mobile media a month, serving more than 4 billion ad impressions a month.[citation needed]

In July 2011, Trevor Healy, formerly of Jajah was appointed Chief executive officer.[5] Zohar Levkovitz will stay with Amobee as Vice Chairman.[5]

Amobee was acquired by Singtel in March 2012 for $321 million.[6]

In June 2014, Amobee acquired two of its competitors: Adconion Direct for $235M and Kontera for $150M, in an attempt to consolidate its market position.[7]

In December 2016, Kim Perell, President of Amobee and former CEO of Adconion Direct was appointed Chief Executive Officer.[8]

On February 22, 2017, Amobee announced an agreement to acquire Turn,[9] a global technology platform for marketers and agencies.[10]

In March 2018, Amobee partnered with TruSignal, Inc to launch custom bid algorithms for marketers.[11]


Amobee's original backing was from financial backing from Sequoia Capital, Accel Partners and Globespan Capital, as well as strategic investments from Motorola, Cisco, Vodafone and Telefónica. Since 2012, Amobee has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Singtel.
