Lins Joins Thurston At Comcast


Adlink senior vice president of marketing and communications Vicki Lins resigned on Wednesday to join her former boss Charlie Thurston at Comcast Corp.

She'll become New York-based vice president of marketing and communications for Comcast Cable Ad Sales on Aug. 5. Lins, who was at the Los Angeles interconnect for five years and was promoted to senior vice president in January 2001, handled its "Targeted TV" branding campaign. She now will build a brand identity and develop a marketing infrastructure for Comcast Cable Ad Sales, she said.

Thurston, who was Adlink's president and CEO, joined the Comcast cable operation last March as president of ad sales. Executive vice president Hank Oster then left in March.

Assuming the duties of both men is Adlink president Bob McCauley.
