Congratulations to AOL on selecting Jules Polonetsky as their new CPO and Sr VP Consumer Advocacy

We are happy to see Tatiana moving into a new opportunity and thrilled to see that her seat has been filled by one of our advisory board members, Jules Polonetsky. A longtime advocate for privacy and consumers, Jules has in recent years been heavily involved in working with non-profits and families on child safety issues. Here is what AOL shared about the move:

Jules Polonetsky has been promoted to Chief Privacy Officer and Senior Vice President, Consumer Advocacy, reporting to Randy Boe. Prior to joining AOL in 2002, Jules was Chief Privacy Officer at DoubleClick. He also served as the New York City Consumer Affairs Commissioner for Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

In his new role, Jules will lead all activities related to AOL's privacy policies and procedures. He and his team will work to formulate and enforce standards for a wide range of consumer issues, including privacy, ad policy, accessibility, content guidelines, community practices, child safety, and general online security. This team will also launch education and communications initiatives across AOL to their commitment to consumers and privacy.

congrats Jules!
