Ampush, a Facebook Strategic Preferred Marketing Developer, announced Thursday that it has appointed former Facebook Vice President of Global Marketing Solutions Group Tom Arrix to its board of advisors.

Arrix left Facebook in July after seven years with the social network, helping Facebook foster marketing relationships with brands such as Walmart, American Express, Coca-Cola and GM.

With Ampush, Arrix will advise the company on client strategy, strategic partnerships and product development. Prior to working with Facebook, Arrix led Univision Digital’s advertising and mobile sales team.

Ampush CEO and Co-Founder Jesse Pujji commented on the hire in a press release:

We look forward to working closely with Tom; we have gotten to know each other well in the last several months and Tom shares our values and vision for Ampush. His deep experience and knowledge of media sales, Facebook advertising and native platforms will be integral in taking Ampush to the next level.

Arrix is excited to get started:

Ampush is raising the bar by taking the complexity out of buying ads for brands and direct response advertisers, on the industry’s biggest native ad platforms like Facebook and Twitter. During my time at Facebook, I witnessed Ampush drive major ROI across multiple industries through Facebook advertising. This trend will continue on other native platforms as the industry evolves and Ampush continues its upward growth trajectory. I’m thrilled and honored to work with Ampush’s founders, some of the industry’s true rock stars.
