Former CEO of AOL joins OpenX as chairman
What does a little open-source ad-server business do to get noticed? Bring on board a major person from the industry.
OpenX, one the industry's largest ad networks and the dominant open-source ad server company, just got a little bigger. OpenX announced that Jonathan Miller, former CEO of AOL, has joined the company as its chairman. Writes Scott Switzer of the announcement:
Jon has much experience working with major advertisers, as well as large and small publishers. He understands how difficult it is to provide software, service, and media to medium to small publishers, which is the core user base of OpenX. He can help us grow from a small company to a larger one. He understands our need to continue to focus on making OpenX simple, scalable, and extendable.
This is huge news for the OpenX team. OpenX continues to prove itself to be one of the top open-source companies to watch.
