IAC Appoints New CEO for About.com


IAC has made a promotion at the top ranks of one of its better-known properties. The company tapped Neil Vogel to be CEO of About.com, the curated information website it bought from The New York Times Company for $300 million last year.

Vogel was the founder and ultimately CEO of Recognition Media, a marketing company perhaps best known as the entity behind the online entertainment world's Webby Awards. Before launching Recognition, he was a senior manager at digital publicity and content boutique Alloy Media + Marketing.

IAC quoted Vogel as saying about his new position that "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to dig in with the entire team and unlock its incredible brand potential."
