As President and CEO of Index Exchange, Andrew leads 300 of the brightest minds in advertising technology across the U.S., Canada and Europe. With a sharp focus on delivering benefits to media companies like The New York Times, Hearst, Daily Mail and Conde Nast as they tackle the world of automation, he’s built Index Exchange as one of the only pure-play and transparent ad exchanges in the advertising ecosystem. While he’s responsible for providing strategic direction and market vision to the company at large, he’s also hands on with all day-to-day corporate operations.
Andrew has a unique penchant for the advertising industry and the promise of its automated future. At only age 15, he was a strategic advisor for his family company, Casale Media – one of the first ad tech startups built to help marketers manage online ad inventory. 15 years later, he’s pivoted his family’s company Casale Media into Index Exchange. By doubling down on investments in engineering and infrastructure, he’s continued to grow the company’s revenue by over 100% y/y and adding headcount when needed to bolster the company’s offering.
As a respected industry thought leader, Andrew is widely sought-after for his expertise and opinions on programmatic and exchange-traded media, and the growing need to transact with transparency at the forefront of the conversation. Andrew’s bylines and media contributions have appeared in numerous publications including Ad Age, Adweek, AdExchanger, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
