“At OpenX, we work closely with our clients to understand their needs, and are intensely focused on helping them achieve their monetization goals,” said Jason Fairchild, CRO and Co-Founder at OpenX. “Intermarkets’ bold commitment to implementing forward thinking technology has created a flourishing partnership, from the launch of a unique Header tag strategy in 2014 to the OpenX Ad Server transition. We are pleased they have selected the OpenX Ad Server to manage and deliver their inventory across all of their properties.”
