AOL Time Warner has appointed Patricia Fili-Krushel, former chief executive of WebMD Health, as its executive vice president of administration. Fili-Krushel will oversee human relations and report to Richard Parsons, the company's co-chief operating officer.
Fili-Krushel comes from a long background in media and entertainment. Prior to WebMD, she was president of the ABC TV network and served in executive roles at Lifetime Television and HBO. Her tenure at WebMD only lasted from April 2000 until now, making her one of many media veterans to have left for Internet start-ups only to return to their former haunts.
