AOL Canada hires another sales member from Microsoft

Eyal Zilnik is the latest to join the company from Microsoft, where he worked on the sales solutions executive team.

AOL Canada has added another member of Microsoft’s team to its own, with Eyal Zilnik joining the company as an account executive.

Before joining AOL Canada, Zilnik worked at Microsoft Xbox Solutions as a sales solutions executive in gaming for just over three years. Prior to working at Microsoft, Zilnik held roles at companies including One Stop Media Group, Fourth Wall Media and Capital One. His first day at AOL Canada is August 28.

Vivian Ip, head of agency development at AOL Canada, tells MiC that Zilnik’s experience around big projects like launching ads in the early days of Xbox make him a good fit for the role at the company.

Since Joe Strolz joined as head of AOL Canada from Microsoft Advertising last fall there have been many key hires also making the jump between the two companies, including Michelle Bailey as account director and team lead and Susan Byng as head of specialist sales.
