Lycos Europe marketing chief joins Disney channel

Lycos Europe has reorganised its top management in the UK after the departure of marketing and production director Nicole Morse.

Morse has been poached by Jetix Europe, the Disney-owned children’s television channel, as head of European marketing. The post was previously held by Nibs Dearsley, who last month joined Turner Broadcasting as UK marketing director, with responsibility for children’s TV brands Cartoon Network, Toonami and Boomerang.

Lycos Europe has replaced Morse and commercial director Duncan Dunlop, who left at the end of last year, with two joint managing directors. John van Vroenhoven becomes managing director for the portal and content, and Angela Sanchez Lopez becomes managing director for sales with responsibility for the commercial team.

Van Vroenhoven was previously Lycos Europe’s managing director for the Netherlands and then for France, while Sanchez Lopez was European business development director, responsible for developing and maintaining strategic business relationships.

In addition, Lycos Europe has named Adrian Moxley as head of international agency sales. Moxley joined the company in 2001, and previously worked for John Brown Publishing and EMAP.

Lycos Europe operates a pan-European network of websites in ten languages, and offers search, communication services, content channels, internet access, homepage building and online communities. Lycos Europe now has no connection with US portal company Lycos Inc, which runs the website, and is owned by Daum Communications, South Korea’s leading internet portal (MW August 5, 2004).
