Spot Runner Loses High Profile VP, Hires Two

Los Angeles-based online advertising startup Spot Runner has lost a high profile vice president, Joanne Bradford, to Yahoo!, just months after announcing Bradford's hire as the firm's Executive Vice President of National Marketing Services. According to Yahoo!, it hired away Bradford from Spot Runner to head up the firm's U.S. Revenue and Market Development efforts. Bradford had only joined Spot Runner in March, after serving at VP and Chief Media Officer of Microsoft's MSN Media Network. Separately, Spot Runner said that it has hired on two new vice presidents--Jon Rosen as VP of Sales and Business Development, and Elizabeth Carrasco as VP of Online Engineering. Rosen joins the firm from Autobytel, where he was SVP of its Web business; Carrasco joins from Authenticlick, where she was VP of Engineering, and also served at United Online and Overture.
