Departing Chief Digital Officer Chris Saridakis will head up the marketing services division of the publicly traded GSI Commerce, based in the Philadelphia suburb of King of Prussia, that company just announced in a statement.
The division had $128 million in revenue last year, and has about 800 employees. Saridakis, 41 (left), starts May 17.
Some interesting Gannett Blog reaction, including Anonymous@5:25 p.m., who just wrote in a comment: "If I was Gannett, I would be kissing Saridakis's ass right about now. GSI's clients are some of Gannett's top pre-print clients. Check out their client list. It is scary."
