Panier, previously VP and COO of Bebo, takes on international responsibilities previously under the remit of former Bebo CEO and president of AOL’s People Network Joanna Shields, who left the company in the spring.

The role reports into AOL Ventures executive VP Jon Brod and is responsible for scaling the social network’s operations globally and improving the user experience for its 24m members.

Panier said, “The past nine months have seen us create and deliver a more relevant and open social experience for our users across both new and existing markets, and I look forward to building on this foundation.”
