Place Exchange completes spinout from OOH publisher Intersection

Place Exchange, an SSP for out-of-home, completed its spinout from its former parent company Intersection, a major OOH publisher. Ari Buchalter, who served as CEO for both companies, now takes over as CEO of Place Exchange. Previous COO of Intersection, Chris Grosso, replaces Buchalter as CEO of the publisher.

Advertisers can now choose from a great deal of premium inventory to cover national or local markets and select the screens that index high against their target, he said. On the flip side, advertisers using Place Exchange can also measure performance after the ad exposure, in the form of other actions taken by consumers on digital channels and in-store.
