Q: Why would a company whose revenues are increasingly being driven by the eCommerce side of the business not only create a new Senior Management position for that person (CRO) but then bring in a person who was effectively unemployed at the time of hiring whose background is 100% media sales?!#@*!

Note: eCommerce Revenues as a % of sales increased from 63.6% to 70.7% for the 3 months ending March 31, 2010 vs. March 31, 2009. Source: Geeknet (LNUX) Form 10-q filed 5/6/2010 http://secfilings.com/searchresultswide.aspx...

"...Most recently, Matt was President, Sales and Marketing for Ziff-Davis Enterprise. During his time there, he successfully restructured the sales organization, consistently grew revenue and led efforts to reposition the company as a media and marketing services organization..." Source: Geeknet

Note: To put matt Sweeney's background in perspective Ziff-Davis filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on March 6th, 2008 http://www.google.com/search... . Bloomberg announced today that it has been reacquired for less than $150 million http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news...

Actually, this March 7, 2008 headline from Geeknet's Geek.com would put this into perspective the best "Falling revenue sends Ziff Davis Media into bankruptcy" http://www.geek.com/articles/law/falling-reve...
