Blinkx exec jumps ship to join Videoplaza

videoplaza[Sweden/UK] Stockholm-based Videoplaza have recruited blinkx’s former European Director of Business Development, Gavin Morgan, as its new UK Commercial Director. In his new role, Morgan will be charged with growing the ad server company’s client base and increasing revenue in the UK.

While at AIM-listed blinkx, which claims to be the largest video search engine, Morgan helped forge partnerships with the BBC, MSN,, Miniweb, Rambler and Radian6, among others, and so certainly from the outside he looks to be a good catch.

And potentially, a significant loss for blinkx, a company that, let’s just say, we haven’t heard much from of late.
