Former DoubleClick exec to head Glam Media's Japan division

Yukihiro Yamamura has held executive roles at the Japanese arms of both DoubleClick and Excite, and now will take on the job for the women's media and ad firm.

Glam Media has continued its international expansion, appointing former DoubleClick and Excite executive Yukihiro Yamamura as CEO of its Glam Japan division. Glam Japan hasn't actually launched yet, but is slated to go live later this year.

Yamamura had been head of DoubleClick Japan previously, and before that he had been CEO of Excite Japan since 1999.

"The appointment of Yukihiro Yamamura is a strategic addition to the Glam team as we continue to leverage the fragmentation of the Web globally," Glam CEO Samir Arora said in a release Monday. "With an accomplished background in online advertising and operations from DoubleClick and Excite Japan, Yamamura brings local expertise that will be invaluable as Glam Media expands its position as the leading vertical content network."

Flush with venture cash, Glam has been growing like crazy--hiring former Google sales executive Michael Adair as vice president of corporate development and finance, acquiring overseas properties to help fuel international growth, and launching new divisions.
