New York (PRWEB) February 16, 2010
Image Space Media (http://www.imagespacemedia.com), the leading provider of in-image advertising for the Internet has hired former Sphere/AOL executive Jeff Yolen to serve as executive vice president of Sales and Business Development. Yolen joins Image Space Media from EVRI.com where he most recently served as acting executive vice president.
Yolen, who earned three degrees from Harvard University, has extensive relationships with hundreds of mainstream and social media publishers and will be responsible for expanding the Company's existing publisher network of 2,500 sites and leading its advertising sales efforts.
"We are extremely excited by the opportunity to leverage Jeff's publisher relationships and those among the advertising community" said Jesse Chenard, CEO of Image Space Media. "In addition to supporting rapid growth of our publisher network, the new role will ensure we are developing products and services that benefit publishers, advertisers and Internet users alike."
During his tenure as Chief Revenue Officer at Sphere, which was acquired by AOL, Yolen led distribution partnerships and monetization strategy with media properties including CNN, Wall Street Journal, Major League Baseball, Reuters, CBS, NBC, US News, MTV and others.
With more than 40 million unique visitors each month, Image Space Media places relevant ads on the lower fourth of over 8 million images across the Internet and serves hundreds of millions of impressions per month. Publishers gain incremental revenue through relevant, precisely targeted ads. The transparent ads are user-controlled and only appear when the site visitor mouses over an image.
"Image Space Media has presented an enormous opportunity for publishers to tap previously nonexistent revenue sources," said Yolen. "I'm thrilled to be joining a company that's already delivering outstanding results and look forward to aligning the Company's sales and business development priorities."
