Industry vets think of Morgan as a serial-entrepreneur. He’s been in the biz since way back and co-founded Real Media (now 24/7 Real Media) in addition to starting Tacoda. When I heard the news yesterday, I immediately wondered, should I start searching for domain names registered under Morgan’s name? Is he going to create yet another company?

Well, I spoke with Tacoda SVP of Marketing Larry Allen today for a separate story and he said he’s sure Morgan is staying right where he is.

I also put a call in to the man himself who left me a voicemail last night. He said the transition would allow him to focus more on product strategy and marketing, while Viebranz will do the business-running thing. Morgan sounded confident that Viebranz can run a big business, adding, “and we’re becoming one.”
