Co-Founder of MediaTroopers, Benjamin Truman, resigns

October 4, 2023

Truman helped to grow the affiliate's reach to over 24 North American markets including several states, Washington DC and Ontario, Canada.

The Co-Founder and COO of affiliate MediaTroopers, Benjamin Truman, has announced that he will be leaving the company. After founding MediaTroopers in 2018 alongside Shmulik Segal, Truman will be stepping down from his role to pursue other opportunities.

Segal, CEO and Co-Founder of MediaTroopers, said, “It’s hard to say goodbye to a colleague and friend who has become such an integral part of the MediaTroopers team. Ben has left an incredible impact on the company that we will feel long after he leaves.

“His dependable work ethic and fearless leadership have guided us through our ups and downs, and it has been an honor to work alongside him and learn from his generosity and commitment. Ben, you will always be a part of the MediaTroopers family.”

MediaTroopers specializes in marketing strategies for North American online gambling operators. The brand aims to drive traffic to operators’ platforms through mobile acquisition channels via Google, Adwords and social media platforms.

While Truman was COO, MediaTroopers expanded to cover a market of over 24 states, as well as Washington DC and Ontario, Canada by the start of this year. The affiliate is licensed in 21 states, and has a presence in other states where licenses are not required at the affiliate level, such as Connecticut, Illinois, New York, Ohio and Nevada.

Truman commented, “Leaving my family at MediaTroopers will never be easy, but I feel that as the company has gotten to where it is now, it is time for me to go and pursue new opportunities.

"While I’m looking forward to the next steps in my career, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at MediaTroopers and I will keep in touch with the team, both personally and professionally.”
