AOL Europe reshuffles top table

Meaner, but not necessarily leaner

AOL Europe -- a venture between America Online Inc and Bertelsmann AG -- has shuffled its senior management team in a bid to turn the service provider into a meaner, but not necessarily leaner, fighting machine. David Phillips, who has been the acting MD for AOL UK since March becomes senior VP, pan-European Business and Legal Affairs. Karen Thomson will take over the reins as the new MD for AOL UK. Both Phillips and Thomson, who have already moved desks, will report to the president and CEO of AOL Europe, Andreas Schmidt. Among a number of other senior appointments Frank Keeling, AOL UK's Business Development Director has been made senior VP, Portal Business for AOL Europe. Daily Net finance news from The Register
