TORONTO & PARIS, Nov. 14, 2017 — Index Exchange announced today it’s expanding into France to join sophisticated publishers and buyers looking to test new solutions for header bidding. According to eMarketer, programmatic digital display ad spending is expected to reach 672.6 Million Euros in France by the end of 2017 . As programmatic advertising continues to expand along with the adoption of header bidding, Index will partner with participants across the programmatic landscape to offer more choice, trust and a transparent view of current market conditions.

Index’s new office is located in the heart of Paris 9eme and will house the company’s future French employees, including the recently hired Director of New Business who will be charged with building Index’s relationships with agencies and DSPs. Charles Emeriau, Director, Publisher Development, will continue to lead publisher growth efforts in France.
