We are excited to welcome back Barb Dybwad, a former editor at Engadget, Joystiq and TUAW, who is rejoining AOL as director of new business development for all three properties.

Barb returns after a 4-year absence, during which time she held a number of roles at start-ups on both the editorial and business side. Her previous roles include vice president of content at Tecca, a news and information site about consumer electronics, director of production at Crowd Fusion, the collaborative Web and mobile publishing platform, and senior editor at Mashable.

AOL's technology media brands are at the forefront of the industry, aggressively covering news and reviews while offering in-depth analysis and expertise both online and off. Barb's experience is expected to help the new business team to elevate these brands even further.

Welcome back, Barb!
