We are excited to announce that ExecRank has named three of our AOL executives to its list of Top Executives for 2012 in a range of categories!

Artie Minson, former AOL CFO and now Chief Operating Officer, was featured at number 94 out of 250,000 CFO's in the country. "This accolade from ExecRank is a reflection of all of the hard work my five thousand teammates have put in at AOL and I am honored to accept it on their behalf," said Minson.

Jim Norton, SVP-Head of Advertising Sales, came in at number 6 out of 15,000 sales officers across the nation. After receiving the news Jim stated, "At AOL, we partner with the world's top advertisers and this recognition is validation that our teams are providing exemplary service and advertising innovation that will continue to drive significant value for our clients."

ExecRanks also listed Matt Kelpy as number 123 out of 30,000 Chief Accounting Officers in the U.S. Kelpy said, "I can't say enough about the dedication & effort of our accounting & shared services team every single day, as this recognition is a reflection of those outstanding contributions! I'm thrilled that our efforts were recognized in the Execrank selection process, and humbled to be included in such distinguished company."

The rankings are a result of two years of research and feedback from evaluation committees and top executives that produced an algorithm for how to rank Top Executives based on their performance in 24 different key areas.

Congratulations to all three of these executives! To find out more about AOL's leadership team visit our corporate site.
