AOL Platform-A has been going through some big management changes. Recently, they named ex-Googler Tim Armstrong as their CEO.
Today, AOL is announcing that they are promoting from within. Mark Ellis has been promoted from senior vice president of Vertical and Product Sales to executive vice president of Sales.
“One of our key areas of focus at Platform-A is to build the best ad sales team in the business, and in his years with AOL and Platform-A, Mark has proved himself as best qualified to achieve that,” said Platform-A resident Greg Coleman. “Mark’s knowledge of the industry, his commitment to clients, and his relations with leaders in the industry is unequaled. He also has a proven track record – starting with his success in reinvigorating our automotive relationships in Detroit. Platform-A has the largest scale and the best technologies in the business. And with the improvements we’re making to our sales team, we will be able to more effectively bring this truly unmatched offer to advertisers looking to deliver their key marketing messages online.”
