The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) has elected four new members to its board of directors and reelected six sitting members.
New arrivals include Jim Diaz, SVP of sales and business development at Ask Jeeves; Gary Dillabough, director of business development at eBay; Scott Ferber, chief executive of Advertising.com; and Mitch Golub, president of Cars.com.
“What the IAB-board nominating committee tried very hard to do is a build a diversified group that represents all the critical factions in the industry,” said Greg Stuart, president and chief executive of the IAB. “With Advertising.com covering the lead-generation category, eBay representing transactional advertising, Ask Jeeves representing search, and Cars.com taking over for Autobytel in the automotive category, we feel we have done that job.”
All together, there are 28 members on the IAB board, each serving three-year terms, after being approved by at least 51 percent of the IAB’s general membership.
Boards members who departed the IAB in 2004 included Bill Daugherty from Ask Jeeves, Steve Gross from Terra Lycos, Mark Mariani from CBS SportLine.com, and Jeff Schwartz from Autobytel.
