On the heels of new agreements with Le Figaro Group and BILD.de we’re excited to announce an exclusive multi-year partnership with the Guardian News & Media (GNM), one of the media industry’s most innovative and forward thinking global publishers.

GNM has long partnered with us to provide content recommendations for their audience, but in the coming weeks we’ll be expanding our relationship across the globe, including GNM’s main markets in the UK, US, and Australia.

In a story published to AOP, Tim Gentry, Global Revenue Director at Guardian News & Media commented: “We’re very pleased to be working with Outbrain to deliver paid-for content recommendations. Their strong global network, service levels and cutting-edge technology made them the right choice of partner for us.”

New users, more engagement through quality recommendations, and ultimately, a considerable monetization opportunity is the path we’re continuing on with GNM. We’re delighted they’ve chosen us as their long-term partner in content technology.

Stephanie Himoff, Outbrain’s UK & EIRE Managing Director, sums it up nicely: “We are delighted about this long term partnership and to be selected by the Guardian following a thorough selection process. The Guardian is one of the most innovative and forward thinking global publishers, delighting its readers with world class content.”

We will continue to innovate together and look forward to our shared success.
