Shashi Seth, Another Ex-Googler, Lands At AOL

AOL announced today that it’s hired former Google employee Shashi Seth as its Senior VP of Global Advertising Products. While with Google, Seth was head of monetization for YouTube. Most recently he was the Chief Revenue Officer for Cooliris.

AOL’s addition of Seth is the latest in a series of hirings from the search industry — and Google in particular — going back to March when Tim Armstrong left Google to become AOL’s Chairman and CEO. Armstrong was one of Google’s longest serving executives, and AOL credited him for helping to “build one of the most successful media teams in the history of the Internet” at Google.

More recently, Google VP Jeff Levick left to become AOL’s President of Global Advertising and Strategy. PaidContent points out that AOL has also hired ex-Googlers Caroline Campbell and Erin Clift. (It’s worth mentioning that AOL also recently hired former Yahoo SVP Brad Garlinghouse, as well.)

There’s more discussion on Techmeme.
