InfoSpace reorganizes some more

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 2:49 PM

InfoSpace has cut its staff, shed executives and hired executives all in the past few months.

Today, it announced a new leadership structure and affirmed that it will continue to develop technology to help users discover content and information while using a mobile phone or online.

The Bellevue company said Steve Elfman, executive vice president, will now oversee the company's mobile business unit. Brian McManus, executive vice president, will oversee the online business unit.

Both executives report to Jim Voelker, who has served as chairman and chief executive officer of InfoSpace since 2002.

"With our restructuring behind us, we have turned our focus to some exciting opportunities to build and strengthen the success of both our Online and Mobile businesses," Voelker said. "This new leadership structure aligns with how we now operate, and allows us to focus Steve and Brian's expertise and energy on driving our growth strategy moving forward."

Elfman joined InfoSpace in 2003, where he has overseen the growth of the company's mobile platform and mobile search services. McManus joined InfoSpace in April 2003 to lead the online search and directory business.

Reporting lines within the North American and European Online and Mobile business units will fall under McManus and Elfman, respectively.
