AOL UK has appointed a new MD to steer the firm through the wake of selling off its broadband subscriber base to Carphone Warehouse.

Former newspaper suit Andy Jonesco will report to fellow new jobber Carlo d'Asaro Biondo, who was promoted from CEO of AOL France to the President of AOL Europe earlier this month.

He will also get responsibility for pan-European sales and forging commercial alliances in interactive marketing.

Jonesco has been at AOL for five years, working his way up through marketing, content and advertising roles. AOL UK MD is a newly created position, as the firm realigns its business to focus on portal provision. ®
