Israeli adtech company SelectMedia has appointed Siddarth Correya as MD of Asia Pacific. Based in Singapore, Correya will oversee operations and strategic expansion across Asia for SelectMedia.

Correya has over a decade of experience in digital and mobile advertising. He will drive SelectMedia’s full stack solutions across both publishers and key demand partners in the region.

“I look forward to enhancing the brand philosophy by delivering innovative technology solutions across the emerging markets in Asia. Israel is at the forefront of digital advertising with its cutting-edge growth of technology. Asia is a challenging market but the chance to drive innovative, value driven solutions and bringing these best practices to this growing market is what’s exciting," Correya said.

“Correya brings to this role a global business understanding and transformative skills through a balance of data-driven insights, integrated marketing solutions and entrepreneurship in the region.
