Perion Opens Sales Office in Toronto, Expanding North American Presence

TEL AVIV, Israel & TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Undertone, a business unit of Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ:PERI), and a leader in high-impact digital advertising solutions for brands, today announced the opening of a sales and customer service office in Toronto, Canada.

The Undertone Toronto office is located at Workplace One (901 King St., Suite 400). The new site will be led by Linda Kessler, VP of Sales, Canada, who recently joined Undertone from iAd, and will provide sales support to Canadian advertisers and agencies in need of a digital partner.

“I am thrilled to spearhead the opening of Undertone's Toronto office,” said Kessler. “I know the Canadian market has a need for the unmissable digital advertising solutions that Undertone offers. I look forward to building stronger relationships in the area and continuing to grow the Undertone team in Canada.”

The office’s neighborhood is often touted as the meeting point of Liberty Village and King West, an ad tech hub where companies like Twitter are located. The atmosphere of the area is the ideal location for Undertone’s Canadian expansion, given the artistic culture that inspires creativity, blended with a contemporary, professional mood.

The Canadian market presents a robust opportunity for Undertone as Canada’s digital display/video market is expected to reach nearly $2.9 billion in 2017, of which 80% will be high-impact advertising.

“As Perion continues to expand as a global leader in high-quality digital advertising, opening the office in Toronto was a natural next step to broaden our foothold in North America,” said Rob Schwartz, President of Undertone. “I am extremely proud of the achievements of our Undertone sales team worldwide to-date and I’m excited to see that high-touch level of local customer service delivered to the Canadian market.”
