Today marks another exciting day for AOL. I'm thrilled to announce world-class global marketing veteran Kim Kadlec has joined the AOL team as Head of Relationship Management. In this role, Kim will focus on building strategic distribution partnerships with leading, large-scale organizations for our content, brands and platforms around the world.
AOL has built strong positions in news, lifestyle, tech, autos and entertainment, as well as breakthrough and culturally significant content platforms, such as The Huffington Post, MAKERS, Crunchbase, Moviefone, and Mapquest. Kim's role will enable us to most effectively leverage those global content and technology assets to diversify our traffic and distribution mix, develop and grow our consumer brands, and provide meaningful insights to our product, programming and revenue teams.
Kim has a diverse background – including groundbreaking work in building brands on a global scale and navigating the shift by advertisers into digital media – and we have first-hand knowledge of her innovative work. Previously the Worldwide Vice President, Global Marketing Group at Johnson & Johnson, she introduced an updated version of the "4 P's" of marketing – a longstanding pillar for the industry: purpose, presence, proximity and partnership.
With unique visitor growth on our properties for six consecutive quarters, AOL is in a position to become the best partnership company in the industry – and we can't wait to see what the future will hold as Kim leads these efforts globally.
Please join me in welcoming Kim to AOL!
