In brief: Sympathetic nerves

During exercise the sympathetic nervous system is stimulated.
The catecholamines released as well as direct stimulation on the heart result in a faster heart rate as well as increased contractility which raises cardiac output. This increases the rate of volume/pressure rise into the vasculature (dp/dt). This increases bp.
