Engage Seeks Privacy Pedigree Through New Hires

Following the lead of DoubleClick (DCLK), CMGI‘s (CMGI) Engage
on Thursday created two new privacy-related positions in
the company — group director of privacy and public policy, and director of
privacy compliance and corporate counsel.

Mark Horan, in the first role, will work with Engage’s (ENGA) marketing team on corporate privacy initiatives.
Trevor Hughes, in the second role, will work with the company’s legal team
to ensure that Engage complies with its own privacy policies, and to
encourage clients to do the same.

Horan most recently worked as a vice president for state government affairs
for AT&T Inc. (T) Prior to working for AT&T, he worked for the US House
Subcommittee on Telecommunications for US Representative Edward Markey.

Hughes worked for five years at UnumProvident Corp., the
world’s largest provider of disability income protection and services,
where he was assistant counsel and provided legal support for their
advertising and e-commerce functions.

Back in March, DoubleClick — under criticism for its privacy practices —
named Jules Polonetsky, the former consumer affairs commissioner for New
York City, as its chief privacy officer. The company also brought aboard
Bob Abrams, the former New York State Attorney General, to chair its
privacy advisory board.
