USWeb/CKS Names Exec to Head Global Business Operations

Santa Clara, CA-based USWeb/CKS named Keith Schaefer, formerly its executive partner for the Northwest region, to lead the company's new worldwide business development effort.

"We recognize the value of having an executive solely focused on growing our business," said Robert Shaw, CEO. "USWeb/CKS is investing more resources in strategic business development to help build global momentum for our services and strengthen our position as an Internet systems and marketing communications powerhouse."

Schaefer will focus on large-scale, worldwide business development, working closely with the company's regional executive partners and "practice leaders" to integrate strategic business efforts among the worldwide regions.

Schaefer had been responsible for his region's financial performance, client satisfaction, business development, recruiting, and employee professional growth. Previously, he directed the firm's audience development practice. Prior to joining USWeb/CKS, Schaefer co-founded Cybernautics Inc., an Internet communications company. Cybernautics was acquired by USWeb in 1997.
