Women's network iVillage Inc. has named John J. McMenamin as vice president and general manager of sponsorship.

McMenamin will be responsible for sponsorship sales, new-business development, sales operations, creative services and the development of new selling platforms.

"As iVillage.com's unique sponsorship model builds momentum, John's diverse background is a perfect fit for managing our growth, cultivating a highly competitive sales organization, and refining the quality of service we deliver to clients," said John Glascott, iVillage's senior vice president of sponsorship.

Most recently, McMenamin was president and chief executive officer of Compucook Inc., an interactive in-store media company that provides recipes and product information via an interactive kiosk network of more than 2,500 major supermarkets.
