RealMedia Hires New York Times Executive as its New CEO

Online advertising network Real Media on Wednesday announced the hiring of a new president and chief executive officer, Christopher Neimeth, the former senior vice president for business development and strategic planning at Times Company Digital, the Internet unit of The New York Times Company.

Dave Morgan, who had been Real Media's president, is moving upstairs to the position of chairman.

"Chris Neimeth is practically a brand unto himself in the new media industry," says Morgan. "As Real Media takes the next logical steps towards reinforcing its position as the most efficient and effective global online ad network, Chris is the right person to take us there."

While at the New York Times Company, Neimeth worked with Real Media as a solutions provider for the New York Times on the Web. Prior to joining the New York Times Company, Neimeth was a founder of Grey Interactive, New York, and worked for other divisions of Grey Advertising.
