The IAB announced some changes to its board this afternoon, including the appointment of Yahoo vet Wenda Harris Millard as vice chair of its executive committee. An alum of DoubleClick back in the day, Yahoo most famously and now Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Wenda has perhaps the most recognized faces in online ad selling.

Other new members of the board include Ned Desmond, president of Time Inc.
