Hyundai Motor America has named Brian Miller its new vice president of marketing, responsible for overseeing all marketing and advertising for the automaker in the U.S.

The online ad-serving agreements keep coming.

German ad serving firm Falk eSolutions AG, which just last week launched operations in the U.S., has signed a new ad-serving client in ad network Adtegrity.com.

Adtegrity’s online advertising network consists of 250 Web sites and delivers over 1.3 billion ad impressions per month across several vertical content categories.

Meanwhile, 24/7 Real Media has re-upped its ad-serving agreement with Aviation Week‘s AviationNow.com. The ad company’s Open AdStream Central product will be the site’s exclusive ad serving product.

Aviation Week is a division of the McGraw-Hill Companies.

DoubleClick has signed several new clients to use its Ensemble marketing automation software — a product line spawned from its acquisition of Protagona in November 2002.

New customers include General Motors’ OnStar subsidiary, Orbitz, Lycos, and two unnamed financial services companies.
