Wenda Harris Millard used to work high up the food chain in the DoubleClick media division (I think before my time). she left for Yahoo!, where she spent the past many years at Yahoo! Well, time for a change.. she’s left Yahoo! and has landed as President of Martha Stewart Media. a) that was fast! and b) probably a good time to move on from Y!

I’ve gotten word that Kate Carman, well regarded by most everyone, is returning to DoubleClick! Kate was a strong player for DM for a long time and left EI after the deal closed and she helped them get their systems moving. It will be great to have her back!
Also, on a less good note: long-time clicker Diane Yu will be moving on to her next opportunity. Doug Knopper and team at freewheel will be her new digs.
Lastly, a fond goodbye to Ralf Hirt. Ralf is also onto his next episode, after ~9 years with DoubleClick, in APAC and ending in NY. I worked with Ralf lots, for a time, with DCJ, where he was on the board.

Doug Knopper has come out from hiding! Running video start-up http://www.freewheel.tv/, with Jon Heller also on board. Rumors of other clickers returning are bubbling, stay tuned!
I’ll be in Toronto in July and will try and hop over to the EI offices to see Ted Ma and the other former clickers that remain there.

I’m all linked in now with Bill Mills, CEO of Zingy. Bill was real cool, had some good moves on the court and even bought a slew of companies while at DoubleClick. He ended with the Performics deal, project sherlock, which was a good deal, so Bill’s legacy is a good one in my eyes
I also swapped emails with Nicole Aste, who is in an operations/finance role at Yahoo! It was good to say hi to Nicole before some “certain” deals closed

- Sadly, Joy Cavanaugh is leaving DoubleClick. After many good years and many happy clients, new challenges await. I happened to be in NYC for her going away party, and there were ex-clickers in attendance! Matt Ball, former email SC was there, good to see him. And soon-to-be fomer Beyond’er (they can get their own blog), Neeraj Kochhar (soon to be Starcom’er). Nice to see them and the network as vibrant as ever!
