eXelate, a New York-based provider of data management tools for online publishers and operator of an open marketplace for audience targeting data, has raised $15 million in Series B funding in a round ledby Silicon Valley’s Menlo Ventures with participation of Israeli VC firm Carmel Ventures.

The latter led the company’s initial $4 million financing round back in October 2007.

Menlo Ventures partner Mark Siegel will join Carmel’s Shlomo Dovrat on eXelate’s board, which was recently expanded to include New York Times Company SVP Digital Operations Martin Nisenholtz and IPG’s Mediabrands Ventures CEO Matt Freeman.

Since eXelate’s U.S. launch of the eXelate eXchange in May 2008, the company has expanded both its footprint of accessible audience data (to 150 million U.S. unique visitors presently) as well as its suite of solutions to enable efficient interactions between buyers and sellers of data.

The startup says it will use the funding to enhance its data marketplace footprint, as well as expand the functionality of its data management toolset.
