As President and CEO of DPAA, Mr. Frey oversees all operations driving awareness, value and revenue to this fast growing space. DPAA provides industry leadership to networks, technology, content, location data, mobile and research companies. It fosters collaboration between the digital out-of-home (DOOH) community, ad agencies and brands providing research, standards and best practices in areas such as mobile integration and programmatic.
During Mr. Frey's tenure, he has vastly grown the organization's mission and membership base. In addition to DPAA providing marketing, tools and standards for share shifting media spend, DPAA also acts as a business accelerator to individual members and the total advertising ecosystem.

He has brought the entire DOOH industry to new heights of recognition in large part through his creation of the “Video Everywhere” annual global Summit attracting the highest levels of brand and agency decision makers along with today’s important thought leaders.
Under Mr. Frey's leadership, the Summit has shattered all previous attendance records while firmly establishing itself as the premier conference dedicated to all digital ad applications outside the home, including programmatic buying, multi-screen strategies, data growth and location initiatives.
