Google’s Lexi Reese Leaves DoubleClick Ad Exchange, Heads To Facebook

Lexi Reese Joins FacebookAccording to a source, the director of sales for the DoubleClick Ad Exchange in the US, Lexi Reese, is leaving Google to join Facebook and work on their “local ads” business – still looking into what that means exactly.

Reese had been the Director of the Google Content Network prior to taking on the DoubleClick Ad Exchange role in late 2009 where she succeeded Michael Rubenstein, who joined AppNexus as President in September 2009.

These are much different days for Google as it relates to the Exchange than 2009 as it is increasingly seen as the unstoppable force in non-guaranteed, display ad buying and selling, whereas when Rubenstein left, the Exchange was just starting to percolate – though there is always a sense of inevitability when Google “goes for it.”

A Google spokesperson confirms her departure.
