Working at the forefront of the digital revolution, he’s led traditional print publishers into the online world; helped SaaS, software, and service companies innovate and expand their footprint globally; and leveraged next-generation platforms to invent local best-of-breed business models, technologies, and partnerships that have driven revenue for global players in the United States, APAC, and Europe.

Assuming his role as CEO on October 2nd, Kaplan stated, "I'm excited to be a part of the Aquent team. This company has a long history of being a leader in the creative and marketing industries. I look forward to continuing that tradition and providing a clear vision for the company's future."

John Chuang, who co-founded the company while an undergraduate at Harvard University and served as CEO since its beginning, will remain as chairman of Aquent and CEO of TRI Ventures. “We’re incredibly happy to have someone as accomplished as Doug join our team,” said Chuang. “His global experience in building strong product and digital teams as well as his background in technology, software, and media organizations, make him a natural fit for our suite of Aquent brands.”
