AOL Appoints David Shing To Run Media And Marketing Ops In Europe

More staff shuffling around for AOL (NYSE: AOL) in Europe as part of its restructuring, post-demerger. David Shing is the new head of Media and Marketing for the region, overseeing the company’s content and marketing strategies. He will report directly to Kate Burns, the head of AOL Europe. Previously, Shing had been European marketing director, a position he has held since 2007.

Shing is replacing AOL Europe’s previous head of media and marketing, Rohit Agarwal, who took voluntary redundancy and is expected to leave sometime this summer, according to a spokesperson AOL Europe. AOL has been offering redundancy to employees as part of its restructuring. Shing is assuming the role immediately, and is understood to be working with Argawal.

Shing’s brief includes online, offline, social and viral partnerships for AOL, as well as its brand and product range.

Eugenia Makhlin is taking over as the new European marketing director, Shing’s old role. She had been a marketing director at AOL’s NY office, and had worked for Google (NSDQ: GOOG) before that.

AOL Media in the U.S. recently saw a big management change too: earlier this month, David Eun joined as division’s president. He is responsible for more than 80 content sites,, recent acquisition StudioNow as well as AOL’s NYC and LA studios. Eun had been in charge of content partnerships for YouTube and Google.

Last week, AOL announced three changes in its sales team in the UK: Toby Morris, Andrew Moore and Rob Blake are now respectively head Premium Sales, Agency Relationships and Performance Sales, all reporting directly to Kate Burns.
