AOL sales exec joins Friendster

When you’ve got big plans, you want folks from big companies is the mantra for some maturing startups–clearly including Friendster who just announced they’ve brought in ex-AOL sales Veep Charles Barrett to run–yes,you guessed–sales.
More interestingly, perhaps, is the fact that Barrett was the guy who monetized Geocities for Yahoo after that acquisition–a fact that means he should be equally adept at squeezing an ad model out of Friendster, this minute’s ‘I have millions of users but can’t make $$’ from them winner.
Also, did I mention that Barrett is a long-time West Coaster?
Go get’em, guys.
