Charles Stubbs has left his position as president of Yellowpages.com (a unit of AT&T) to become CEO of Atlanta-based Primedia, which publishes a variety of print and online vertical consumer guides, including Apartment Guide and New Home Guide, ApartmentGuide.com, NewHomeGuide.com and Rentals.com.
He is being replaced by David Krantz, who is currently AT&T’s vice president of business development. Krantz is a five-year AT&T veteran who has focused on developing new consumer-oriented interactive products. Before joining AT&T, Krantz held marketing and strategy positions at GoDigital, AOL and Netscape.
Stubbs’ decision was driven at least in part by a desire to return to his native Atlanta.
His departure follows on the heels of senior Internet management turnover at Idearc Media (Eric Chandler, later replaced by Briggs Ferguson) and RHD interactive, where Jake Winebaum left his role as president of after less than a year on the job.
