Following an exceptional year of growth, out-of-home (OOH) marketing technology developer Broadsign today announced the expansion of its programmatic team with the appointment of John Dolan as vice president, global head of media sales. Bringing more than a decade of programmatic mar tech experience to the newly formed role, Dolan will oversee Broadsign’s global sales team in identifying new growth opportunities and amplifying revenue with a data-driven approach—largely focusing on Broadsign’s OOH demand side platform (DSP), as well as its supply side platform (SSP) via third-party DSP partnerships. 

Dolan joins Broadsign with a comprehensive understanding of the ad tech landscape spanning the demand side (DSP), data management (DMP), ad serving, dynamic creative and verification. He comes to Broadsign from Integral Ad Science, where he spearheaded agency and programmatic development for the company as Global VP. Prior, he served as vice president of national sales at Sizmek, developer of an independent buy side ad server, and various sales roles at Rocket Fuel, a global  programmatic marketing platform. Dolan holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Rhode Island.
