Hillel names former AOL exec as new COO


(JTA) — A former senior vice president at AOL has been named the new COO of Hillel International.

Hillel, the global Jewish college campus organization, announced its appointment of business sector veteran Adam Lehman in a statement on Tuesday.

In addition to working at AOL, Lehman was previously the COO of advertising firm GeniusRocket, the founder of Rock Ridge Ventures and the president and COO of software company Lotame Solutions.

“I believe my background can help Hillel continue to transform its brand, infrastructure and operations in order to meet the unique challenges of the 21st century,” Lehman said.

In June, Hillel hired former Google executive Mimi Kravetz to be the company’s first chief talent officer. At Google, Kravetz spearheaded partnerships with the Israel Museum to digitize the Dead Sea Scrolls and with Yad Vashem to digitize their photo collection.
