CBS shuffles exec suite at interactive unit
EmptyCBS Interactive restructured its senior management Thursday and opened a new office in Silicon Valley.
Bryon Rubin has been named executive vp and CFO of the division, which is headed by president Quincy Smith. Rubin, a nine-year CBS veteran, comes to the digital side after serving as a senior executive in CBS' corporate development and M&A group.
CBS Interactive COO Steve Snyder will run the group's satellite office in Menlo Park, Calif., as the company looks to build more partnerships in the tech hotbed. Michael Marquez, who came to the network a year ago from Yahoo, also will work in that office after being promoted to executive vp strategy and corporate development.
The network also named four GMs to oversee the specific units of the business.
Anthony Soohoo, founder of Dotspotter.com, acquired last year by CBS, will be based in Menlo Park and run the entertainment unit, which includes the CBS Audience Network, CBS.com, Dotspotter, Wallstrip and the recently launched MobLogic.
Jason Kint, who manages CBSSports.com, will now also manage CBSNews.com. The recently promoted Jeff Sellinger will continue to lead mobile operations, and music site Last.fm will continue to be led by co-founders Felix Miller, Martin Stiksel and Richard Jones.
