Huffington Post names a CEO

Arianna Huffington moves to president and editor in chief of the media group. Jimmy Maymann, previously AOL senior vice president of international, becomes CEO. From The Wrap:

"Jimmy has been an indispensable partner to me over the past year-and-a-half as we have launched HuffPost around the world," Huffington says. "It has been a real pleasure working with him on the launch of HuffPost in London, Toronto, Montreal, Paris, Madrid and Rome, and now I look forward to working together as we continue to launch HuffPost across the rest of the globe, and unlock new traffic and revenue potential here at home."
