Yahoo! Europe has stolen another radio sales person from Capital

Advertising to work in its rapidly expanding European sales

operation.



Rowan Link, group agency manager at Capital, quits the company in May

when she will take up her new position at Yahoo! Europe as European

promotions and programming manager.



Link will be working closely with Fru Hazlitt, currently sales director

at Capital, who will leave the company in three weeks to head the UK

office of Yahoo!’s European sales operation.



Link has worked in sales at Capital for five years and leaves behind a

team of two sales executives and two account planners.



Chris Bennett, sales controller at Capital, said that while Link would

always remain loyal to the Capital brand, new media is an exciting

challenge for sales people from radio backgrounds.



Link is the third person in the past eight months to leave Capital for

Yahoo!. In addition to Hazlitt, Martina King, ex-managing director of

Capital, left to become the dotcom’s UK and Ireland managing

director.



Capital will not recruit a replacement for Link until Linda Smith

replaces Hazlitt as sales director in April.
