Stirista Welcomes Hamid Qayyum as New Head of Digital Solutions

Stirista recently announced the hiring of Hamid Qayyum as Head of Digital Solutions. His primary responsibilities will include leading the company’s Digital Solutions team toward driving media activation, and ensuring the continued strategic growth of Stirista’s footprint in the burgeoning digital media sector.

The hiring comes as Stirista aggressively pursues a stake in the growing TV and digital advertising space and coincides with its plan to launch the first CTV platform with Stirista’s industry-leading offline attribution technology.

The New York-based industry veteran has more than 25 years of advertising and media experience. Hamid most recently led Altice’s advertising division’s (a4) strategic partnerships efforts, focusing on the company’s partnerships with MVPDs and agencies. He was also responsible for nurturing relationships with inventory and data vendors. Prior to Altice, Hamid had senior roles with various agencies and data/media companies, focusing on partnerships as well as business development in both the Advanced TV and digital advertising spaces. 

As Stirista co-founder and CEO Ajay Gupta shared, “Hamid is an industry legend and having him leading our expanding presence in the CTV space is a big win for the company. I attribute Stirista’s growing prominence as an industry leader to the excellent team we’ve carefully cultivated during Stirista’s 11-year history. I look forward to seeing Hamid, with his wealth of experience in advertising and media, lead the Digital Solutions team to achieve tremendous growth.” 

Hamid earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Loyola University in Baltimore. Away from the office, Hamid enjoys golf, fishing, managing his fantasy football teams, and watching his favorite Baltimore sports teams (Ravens and Orioles) on television.
