Nytimes.com signs Europe ad manager

The New York Times has appointed an advertising manager to handle European and Asia sales for Nytimes.com, the largest newspaper website in the US.

International ad manager Gareth Jones will be based in London, and represents the first sales presence for Nytimes.com in Europe. His appointment follows a decision by the New York Times Company, owner of the Times and the International Herald Tribune, to take European sales in-house.

The New York Times's contract with sales-house Publicitas ends in January, after which the Tribune's own sales team will handle the European market.

Jones joins from Global Media & Publishers LLC in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he was the sales and marketing manager representing various international publications and their respective websites, including the FT.

He said: "Nytimes.com is the largest newspaper site in the US, and is visited by a huge number of people outside of America."
