It’s been 14 months since the AOL-owned social networking site Bebo had a global chief executive. It’s been without one, in fact, since Joanna Shields left the post. She’d helped engineer the sale of Bebo to AOL for $850 million in March 2008.
After leaving her role as Bebo chief exec in May last year, Shields went on to become the boss of AOL’s People Network division before leaving the company entirely in May.
Panier had been a senior operations and finance executive with Google before being appointed as Bebo’s COO this January.
In the time since Tim Armstrong become AOL’s chief executive in March, Bebo has undergone some management restructuring.
