Big Yellow Exec Jumps to i-traffic

Wayne Mitchell, one of the principal architects of Bell Atlantic's online yellow pages directory BigYellow, was named to the newly created position of vice president, account manager at I-traffic in New York City.

As advertising and promotional director at BigYellow, Mitchell handled an annual online ad budget of roughly $2 million. He will report to i-traffic chief executive Scott Heiferman, chief financial officer Ed Dintrone, and media director Peter Meluso.

i-traffic is beginning a hiring blitz over the next 10 weeks in which it hopes to increase the staff from roughly 50 to 80 people, according to an Adweek report.

Mitchell, an 11-year veteran of Nynex and, more recently, with Bell Atlantic following last year's merger, was responsible for assembling a team of designers and media planners for Big Yellow plus orchestrating its distribution and promotional efforts.
