I’m not very familiar with American job titles as everyone seems to be a VP, EVP or SVP, but Heather seems to be a fairly senior person at Fox Interactive which makes me wonder:
- Why would TechCrunch require an M&A specialist?
- Is TechCrunch so big now that it needs such a senior hire as a CEO?
It’ll be interesting to see if TechCrunch do carry out any acquisitions over the next 6-12 months, although I doubt they need an M&A specialist to do this. Valuing sites is such a fuzzy area that there is no precise method and I’m not sure how much expertise Heather could really add.
