Index Exchange Opens New San Francisco Office

Index Exchange Expands to a Total of Seven Offices

SAN FRANCISCO – Index Exchange, the principled exchange for publishers, announced the opening of a new office in San Francisco that extends the company’s commitment to serving publishers and partners wherever they are and in a way that suits them best. With the addition of San Francisco, Index Exchange has a total of seven offices including New York, Toronto and London.

Lauren Irvin, director of business development and Derek Houdyshell, regional director, publisher development will co-lead the new office to work on growing and maintaining relationships with publishers and partners. Index Exchange projects the San Francisco office will grow considerably by end of year.

“San Francisco is a major media market, and it’s vital for us to be there in the thick of it,” said Andrew Casale, CEO of Index Exchange. “Being that close to half of our closest strategic partnerships are based in the region, we are long overdue for a point of presence in the area.”

Index Exchange has been committed to steadily expanding the company’s global and regional growth. The opening of a San Francisco office comes on the heels of the creation of a London office, led by James Prudhomme, managing director EMEA.

“Just as we locate our servers to be physically close to clients to reduce latency and improve service, we wanted to locate our offices physically close to the people we partner with to improve communication and make it easy for them to connect with us,” said Lauren. “In terms of our main concentration, the San Francisco team will be laser-focused on growing and maintaining existing relationships with our buying partners, as well as growing our premium publisher base.”

Index Exchange’s new office is located at 535 Mission Street, in the Upper SOMA neighborhood.
