Demand Media Shuffles Execs

Santa Monica-based Demand Media has had another shuffle in its executive ranks, saying late Thursday that it has named Brian Pike, currently its Chief Technology Officer, to the role of Chief Operating Officer. In addition, Demand Media said that Julie Campistron, who had been Executive Vice President, Media, will step down from the company, with Scott Boecker, Executive Vice President, Marketplaces, also leaving the company. Pike had joined Demand Media in November of 2014 from Rubicon Project, where he also served as CTO. The changes come as new Demand Media CEO Sean Moriarty continues to remake the company's executive suite. Pike had served with Moriarty back at Ticketmaster, where he also had served as CTO.
