Seattle-based Go2Net Inc., which operates a network of
technology- and community-driven Web sites, hired Ellen McManus as the
company’s national sales director.
McManus previously supervised the sales efforts of Yahoo! Canada, @Home
Canada, Quicken Canada and CNET Briefs Canada, as sales director for Rogers
New Media. McManus also represented Rogers in the launching of Canada’s
comprehensive content site, CANOE (Canadian Online Explorer) in 1995.
“Ellen brings to Go2Net an unusually strong combination of Internet sales and
management expertise,” said Russell C. Horowitz, Go2Net chief executive
officer. “We’re. . . fortunate to be adding someone with her experience to direct
the ongoing growth and day-to-day operations of Go2Net’s sales force.”
While the majority of the Go2Net sales infrastructure is based in the
company’s Seattle headquarters, McManus will also supervise the sales
operations of Go2Net’s recently opened offices in New York and Chicago. In
addition, Go2Net plans to open a San Francisco office this month.
