Both Steiner and Burke will be based in Sydney.

Announcing these appointments, Outbrain’s managing director Eytan Galai, said: “We are confident that these moves will help us build additional growth, while ensuring tighter collaboration across our regional offices. I am thrilled to have Andrew on board and Ayal stepping up into the new role to lead the charge in securing continued growth.

“These are exciting times at Outbrain. In a world where Facebook is moving to a feed devoid of news, Outbrain envisions the opposite – delivering a personalised news feed to every user.”
