Microsoft has added some more heft to its search team, hiring Harrison Magun, formerly managing director of Avenue A/Razorfish Search, as its new director of media analytics. A Microsoft spokesperson was able to confirm the hire, but could not provide any details on what Magun’s new position will entail. Magun, a frequent speaker at search and online marketing events, joined Avenue A when it acquired eonMedia in December 2003.

AvenueA/Razorfish is looking for a VP to take over Magun’s search duties, who will also oversee display ads.

“Having one senior executive running both display and search media aligns with our strategy of digital integration. We think the days of managing display and search media in separate silos is ending, and it is important to organize the agency in a way that supports that change,” said a spokesperson.
