AOL Europe chief leaves as restructure looms

President of AOL Europe and former marketer Karen Thomson is leaving the company following AOL UK’s sale to Carphone Warehouse.

Thomson, formerly AOL’s chief executive and chairman in the UK, will be replaced by Carlo d’Asaro Biondo, currently chief executive of AOL France.

Thomson has worked at AOL for 11 years, joining as UK marketing director, a post she held from 1995 to 1998 before becoming vice president marketing AOL Europe and then UK chief executive in 2001.

More changes are expected at AOL, including in the marketing team, in the wake of the company’s purchase by Carphone Warehouse last month for £370m.
