SoundStack Chief Revenue Officer

Rockie Thomas simulcast her first FM radio station online in 1998 and discovered her love for digital audio technology. For over 20 years, Thomas has worked not only with traditional broadcast companies, including AMFM, Emmis, and Tribune but has helped pioneer the digital audio space. Working at companies such as Sonicbox, Spacial Audio, and Bid4Spots, Thomas has helped make digital audio a viable medium and business.

Thomas was one of the first employees at AdsWizz, serving as their VP, Business Development. While at AdsWizz, she evangelized audio advertising to buyers and helped publishers monetize their digital assets through AdsWizz audio ad insertion technology, a global ad exchange, and programmatic platforms. Rockie co-founded the IAB Podcast groups, where she co-chaired the technical committees, co-authoring the industry’s first and second release of the podcast ad metric guidelines.

In 2018, Thomas joined Media Creek (now SoundStack) as Chief Revenue Officer to continue her passion for reinventing digital audio and helping clients succeed.
