SANTA MONICA, Calif., February 07, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Entravision (NYSE: EVC), a leading global advertising solutions, media and technology company, today announced that it will launch operations in the Icelandic market as an Authorized Sales Partner of Meta, the company that owns Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. Entravision will provide support, training, lines of credit and local billing to advertisers in the Icelandic market, thereby enabling them to further their business growth.
"We are excited to enter into the Icelandic market through our longstanding partnership with Meta," said Juan Saldivar, Chief Digital, Strategy and Accountability Officer. "With the addition of Iceland to our roster, Entravision now represents the Meta platform in 14 countries. This expansion into a new region will enable us to continue promoting our mission of bringing sales and creative expertise to growing digital markets across the globe. Iceland has over 341 thousand digitally connected consumers who are hyper-users of social media. We look forward to creating more engagement opportunities leveraging Meta’s social expertise," Saldivar concluded.
Entravision’s operations in Iceland will be spearheaded by Country Manager, Thoranna K. Jonsdottir. "We are pleased to welcome Thoranna to the team to lead our partnership with Meta in Iceland," said Saldivar. "With over 20 years of marketing and specific digital marketing experience, she brings world class expertise and local knowledge to our entry in the region, ensuring that the support we provide is tailored to the Icelandic market," Saldivar continued.

Jonsdottir, Entravision’s Iceland Country Manager. "Entravision has great experience in connecting global and well-known media platforms to their customers around the world. We look forward to working with Icelandic agencies and companies to increase their business results, aided by the effective use of the Meta platform."
The Meta ASP appointment in Iceland adds to Entravision's long list of 14 representations of Meta around the world. For Icelandic advertisers and companies, this expertise will not only enable businesses to make the most of Meta’s platforms to increase sales growth, but also assist them in obtaining more efficient results across the Meta family of brands.
