Vdopia, the programmatic buying and selling platform for mobile video advertising, has announced the addition of Martin Price as Senior Vice President of Product.

Martin Price is the new SVP of Product at Vdopia



He joins the company from OpenX where he held the position of Vice President of Product Management, managing OpenX’s range of ad servers, exchange and SSP enterprise products. Price is also a co-founder of Productsy, a mobile start-up platform-as-a-service for app development.

At Vdopia, he’ll focus on growing the group’s innovative products for mobile video advertisers. Vdopia runs Chocolate, a video-only programmatic platform powered by VDO technology.
