Razorfish's Lord Takes Top Job at AOL Networks

Bob Lord may be leaving Publicis Groupe's Razorfish to run AOL Networks but, given a new partnership between Publicis Groupe and AOL, his ties to his former employer will remain strong.

"Maurice and Publicis Groupe have been at the forefront of live advertising and we have been testing live advertising together for more than a year. Based on the consumer and brand demand, we formed PAL and identified Bob to manage a cross-agency team that will aggressively build out the first live advertising platform for the Internet." The cross-agency team comprises Rishad Tobaccowala, chairman of Razorfish and... Continue reading at 'AdWeek'
