Libsyn has appointed former IAB President Patrick Dolan to its Board of Directors. Dolan served as the President of the Interactive Advertising Bureau from 2017-2020 and as COO since 2007.

Dolan led the organization through transformational growth, helping to increase membership and co-founding the IAB Mobile and Data Centers of Excellence, Digital Sales Certification Program, and the IAB Tech Lab. Under Dolan’s leadership, the IAB also established the IAB Podcast Upfronts, a leading industry event connecting podcasters to agencies and brands.

“Patrick brings decades of digital media experience at both for-profit companies, as well as the most important trade organization, the IAB. He has been a long supporter of both Libsyn’s business and the podcasting sector overall. As a board member, I know Patrick will contribute significantly to Libsyn’s growth and help position the company to be a go-to-destination for podcasters for all of their needs,” said, Libsyn’s CEO, Bradley Tirpak.

Previously, Dolan served as the Director of International Finance and later as Director of Business Operations at DoubleClick, an early innovator in digital advertising services that Google acquired in 2008.

Dolan has also served in executive roles at The Locomotion Channel, a cable channel co-owned by Hearst Entertainment and Corus Entertainment, and CFO of the Early Learning Coalition of South Florida, a not-for-profit with a budget of over $160 million. Earlier in his career, Dolan served as the director of finance for George Soros’ network of philanthropic entities, the Open Society Institute, where he managed a budget of over $500 million disbursed in over 20 countries.

Dolan said, “I am honored to join Libsyn’s Board. As the first podcast hosting company, Libsyn has long been an innovator in the podcast industry. With the recent addition of the AdvertiseCast marketplace and the tremendous growth in podcast advertising, it is an exciting time in the Company’s history. I hope to be able to support Libsyn’s platform strategy and development of new value-added services for podcasters.”
