DoubleClick is a renowned digital marketing[1] company that was established in 1995 by Kevin O’Connor and Dwight Merriman. It was later spearheaded by Kevin Ryan, initially as CFO and subsequently as CEO. DoubleClick’s primary aim was to enhance the purchasing efficiency for advertisers by offering a variety of technological products. This included the DART family of products, which encompassed DFP, DFA, DS, Motif, DE, Sales[5] Manager, Media Visor, Adapt, and Doubleclick Advertising[2] Exchange. In 2007, DoubleClick was acquired by Google[3] for a staggering $3.1 billion, leading to the rebranding of all DoubleClick products in 2018. However, the acquisition was not without controversy, as it raised concerns over competition and privacy[4]. Despite these issues, Google continued to expand its advertising capabilities through various acquisitions, selling DoubleClick’s Performics unit to Publicis Groupe and confirming the acquisition of Invite Media. Today, DoubleClick is known as Display & Video 360, following a rebranding in 2018.
