LONDON, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AppNexus, the real-time ad platform used by global ad networks, demand-side platforms (DSPs), ad exchanges, and other leading online advertising companies, announced today that it has opened an office in London to spearhead the growth of AppNexus across Europe.  AppNexus pioneered RTB in the EU and opened its first EU-based data center last September.

Ajay Daved, Senior Account Director, is the company's first hire of many in the UK.  He will work with new and existing clients, including online advertising networks, agency trading desks and demand-side platforms (DSPs) to spearhead the growth of AppNexus across Europe.

Ajay Daved brings a wealth of technology experience to the role and a solid understanding of the online advertising market in Europe.  He joins from Nugg.ad where he was Sales Director for UK and Ireland.  Prior to that, he was a sales manager at ADTECH, responsible for building the ad server's business among advertisers, online advertising agencies and publishers.  Daved also spent four years at DoubleClick where he became a rich media sales specialist.

Michael Rubenstein, President of AppNexus said, "We were attracted to Ajay's industry experience, technology expertise and entrepreneurial attitude.  He will make a great first hire for our European operation, which is a market we are really committed to growing.  London will be our hub for Europe and we are recruiting for the rest of the European team."

Ajay Daved, Senior Account Director, AppNexus, added, "The online display advertising market is increasingly turning to programmatic buying, with techniques pioneered by AppNexus.  The company's functionality is changing the market and I have a lot of respect for the team.  We plan to grow the business across Europe."

Last month, Microsoft Corp. announced the rollout of the Microsoft Advertising Exchange, powered by AppNexus, in the UK. Other European clients using AppNexus' real-time advertising platform include mexad, Collective UK, Infectious Media, Matiro and Adconion.

AppNexus' new office is located on London's Charlotte Street and Daved starts effective immediately.
