Possibly as a retort to Bing’s recent success in search ads, the company has announced it is intent on hiring two States-based senior marketers, including a vice president of Americas marketing, whose responsibilities will include promoting adoption of consumer and advertiser products in North and Latin America.
The other open position is director of marketing, media and platforms, which among other tasks will head up Google’s push for a firmer position in the display advertising arena. Google has been attempting to beef up its presence in this sector, even teaming with ad agencies on campaigns for companies such as Ford and Pepsi.
