EXTE, one of Europe’s fast-growing adtech businesses, has announced the appointment of two key hires as part of its rapid expansion into the UK market; Matt Goodwin joins as Commercial Director, and Jessica Rosevear as Head of Publisher Business Development.
Matt Goodwin will play a pivotal role in accelerating the company’s growth and market presence in the UK. Matt joins EXTE after a successful tenure as Business Director at Azerion, where he led the GroupM hub for six years. With an impressive track record in the digital advertising industry, Matt brings a unique skill set and perspective to EXTE’s team.
Matt Goodwin, Commercial Director at EXTE, said: “The digital ad industry is well and truly in the age of attention, but the next step feels critical. Marketeers need to ensure they make every moment count. My decision to join EXTE was driven by its distinctive advantage in this area, combining leading contextual platforms in EMEA with bespoke creative and branded content from some of the best minds in the business. Delivering a killer creative in the right environment to a receptive audience is the blueprint for successful digital advertising. EXTE has the tools to make it happen, and I’m excited to bring its solutions to clients across the UK.”
Jessica Rosevear joins the publishing side of the business. She brings almost 15 years of industry experience with her, having worked in various roles in the adtech industry, both agency and in-house. Her most recent role involved managing the publisher portfolio in the UK and France for Azerion/Inskin. Jessica’s experience building robust, long-term partnerships with publishers and agencies makes her a hugely valuable addition to the team.
Jessica Rosevear, Head of Publisher Business Development at EXTE, said: “After witnessing the rapid growth of EXTE and the impressive results its technology and creativity have achieved for publishers and brands, I am thrilled to be joining the team and looking forward to growing the supply side of the business in the UK.
Dominic Woolfe, UK Managing Director at EXTE, said: “These key strategic hires are very much part of our ambitious and exciting expansion plans across the UK and Europe. With the addition of Matt Goodwin and Jessica Rosevear, we know we have two of the best in the business to enhance EXTE’s presence in these regions. As one of Europe’s largest adtech players, we aim to bring that same success to the UK market and expand both the advertising and publishing sides of the company as we grow our unique platform on new shores.”
