View Bio

Bobby Campbell attended college at the University of Missouri, where he graduated with a creative writing degree. After college, he came across an opportunity to enter the new field of digital advertising. In 2003, he raised $20,000 to launch Division-D, which helps advertisers plan, manage, and execute their digital media buys. Division-D capitalized on the exploding digital advertising industry and was named to the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest-Growing Companies seven years since 2012.

In 2010, he launched his second start-up, AdKarma, a leading video SSP helping over 20,000 publishers manage and maximize their video advertising. AdKarma soon became one of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. being ranked #31 on Inc. 5000’s 2014 list of Fastest-Growing Companies. AdKarma was acquired by a multi-national mobile advertising and content leader in 2015.

Bobby is also a columnist and has been published in publications across the world, including Forbes, Entrepeneur.com, Business Insider, and Venture Beat, where he writes about business and the changing nature of content. Most recently, Bobby launched Good Wizard Productions to focus on developing new long-form, tech-enabled content.
