FreeWheel helps automate ad sales for video by figuring out what ads can be used on what content and how the money should be split by the various parties making money on the video display.A tool for video producers as well as sites that host and feature video, the company is the brainchild of DoubleClick alums, and works similar to DoubleClick’s DART system except for video.

Scott Russ works in Client Support and doesn't wear his mask all the time. He has been with FreeWheel for about a year but only started the standing routine a couple weeks ago.
Zhang Xue (张雪) enjoys the office antics, a dynamic change of pace from the Beijing office where he has worked for FreeWheel for more than three years. He is here in New York as part of FreeWheel's rotation program.
This table includes Zhang's other colleagues from Beijing on this rotation round. They spend about 2 months in the US before heading back to Beijing.
He is the man behind FreeWheel's awesome Justin Bieber wall! And Vermeulen is a fan of Business Insider!
