Microsoft Advertising adds new VP

Brandon Grosvenor will join the company as VP of Microsoft Advertising at the end of March, moving from his current role at Postmedia Network.

Brandon Grosvenor is joining Microsoft Advertising as its new VP, taking over the role that was left vacant in late 2013 when Joe Strolz announced he was moving from the company to AOL Canada.

Grosvenor comes to the company from his most recent role as SVP of sales at the Postmedia Network, where he led advertising sales across Canada. Prior to working at Postmedia Network, Grosvenor also held roles with companies including Sun Media, Canwest Communications and the Yellow Pages Group.

In the new role, Grosvenor will report directly to Microsoft Advertising general manager and VP of advertising and online Carlos de Torres. According to a release from Postmedia, the search for his replacement at the company is underway and he starts at Microsoft Advertising at the end of March.
