USWeb/CKS Names Exec to Head Global Business Operations

Santa Clara, CA-based USWeb/CKS named Keith Schaefer, formerly
its executive partner for the Northwest region, to lead the company’s new
worldwide business development effort.

“We recognize the value of having an executive solely focused on growing our
business,” said Robert Shaw, CEO. “USWeb/CKS is investing more resources in
strategic business development to help build global momentum for our services
and strengthen our position as an Internet systems and marketing
communications powerhouse.”

Schaefer will focus on large-scale, worldwide business development, working
closely with the company’s regional executive partners and “practice leaders”
to integrate strategic business efforts among the worldwide regions.

Schaefer had been responsible for his region’s financial performance, client
satisfaction, business development, recruiting, and employee professional
growth. Previously, he directed the firm’s audience development practice.
