AOL promotes Panier to head Bebo global ops
30 Jul 2009
AOL has promoted the VP and COO of its Bebo social media unit, Stephane Panier to head the group’s global operations. Panier will report to directly to Jon Brod, EVP of AOL Ventures, Bebo’s new home within AOL.
The move suggests that rumors AOL will sell Bebo – which it acquired only last year for $850 million – may not be accurate.
