Artificial-intelligence advertising solutions provider Rocket Fuel announced earlier today that the California-based agency has opened a new office in Toronto due to strong demand from Canadian advertisers, especially in the CPG, retail, mobile/telecom and travel sectors, for its artificial-intelligence advertising solutions. With the new Toronto office, Rocket Fuel now has 12 offices worldwide, including in London, New York, Detroit, and Boston. The company plans to open more international offices this year.
The Toronto office will be headed by Senior Account Executive Riaz Sheikh, who previously worked in senior sales roles at Yahoo!, Outdoor Broadcast Network, and Travelzoo.
Amid widespread global demand for its digital ad management platform, Rocket Fuel is expanding rapidly, and recently named Ron Codd, former CFO of PeopleSoft, to its Board of Directors. The company also recently hired Peter Bardwick as CFO and Eric Porres as CMO, rounding out an executive team that includes business leaders and Ph.D. computer scientists from organizations such as NASA, DoubleClick, Salesforce.com, Oracle and IBM.
