“Quantcast is radically simplifying advertising on the open internet, enabling brands to successfully understand and engage audiences that have previously been hard to reach.

According to the OECD, economic growth in Southeast Asia is set to outpace that of Europe and the US in the coming years. This presents a huge opportunity for brands to tap into this increasingly wealthy and connected audience through relevant online advertising.

“The additions to our team announced today will be central to helping more brands in the region access the potential of Quantcast’s unique machine learning technology and first-party data to help grow their businesses.”

Sonal Patel, Managing Director of SEA at Quantcast, said she was excited to be joining the team in Singapore.

“Quantcast has seen significant growth in Southeast Asia in recent years. I’m excited to have the opportunity to continue the great work the team is doing and lead this next phase of growth within such a progessive and successful organisation. My appointment, and those of the other new team members continues the amazing momentum of Quantcast in the region into 2020 and beyond.”

Quantcast’s Singapore commercial operations first started in April 2018 and its Asia Pacific customers include Accor, Citibank, Hilton, Jetstar, Starhub and Uniqlo amongst others.
