Grand Rapids, MI., February 2018 - Media Place Partners, one of the largest independent media buyers in the Midwest, has added Mediaocean, the world's leading software provider for the advertising world, to its lineup of tools. Mediaocean will provide integrated cross-media management software, to help support and enhance MPP’s client campaigns - across TV, Radio, Print, Outdoor, and Digital - including Display, Search, Social, and Programmatic.
Media Place Partners Co-Founder and Managing Director, Dave Kettler, explains, “We are thrilled to leverage Mediaocean’s cutting-edge management platform to unify data compilation and analysis across mediums, systems, teams, channels and vendors. This partnership will be key in delivering our vision of a holistic media landscape to our current and future clients. MPP continues to lead by investing in the best for our current clients and future growth. Selecting Mediaocean elevates us in the marketplace, immensely.”
In July, Media Place Partners was acquired by Grand Rapids-based Adtegrity, a move designed to position MPP at the convergence of traditional and digital media planning and buying. Adtegrity CEO Scott Brew explains, “Our plan in acquiring Media Place Partners has always been to elevate their already strong managed media capabilities to a level far above any of their regional competitors, allowing the Adtegrity brand to pivot and evolve in other exciting directions. The selection of Mediaocean’s gold standard platform is a key piece in that plan.”
Ramsey McGrory, CRO of Mediaocean said, "We're pleased that Media Place Partners has selected Mediaocean to provide foundational software to support media planning and buying workflows. Adtegrity is one of the earliest names in the digital media space and we are excited to play a role in their holistic media vision for MPP.
