192.com strengthens development team ahead of new launches

May 4, 2007

Ana Bakalinova has joined 192.com as senior product manager from AOL UK.

Ana will be in charge of the strategy, development and phased launch of a busy programme of product releases that the company has planned for the next eighteen months. The site, celebrating ten years of operation this year, is one of the busiest and most awarded in the UK searching over 630 million records for people, businesses and places.

In her six years at AOL, Ana organised and delivered solutions for a number of critical and innovative projects, including the effective redesign and relaunch of the entire portal. The relaunch was famously designed to coincide with the Madonna concert at Koko, Camden Town in the summer of 2005 when the pop legend performed her first numbers from the Confessions album.

"Ana brings huge frontline experience to bear on delivering practicable, commercial solutions that customers want", says Keith Marsden, managing director of 192.com. "Our offer and the range of our services are going to undergo fundamental changes in the coming months, so she is bringing her experience to bear at the best possible time."
