Paris will oversee the day-to-day operations as well as the long-term strategy and success of advertising sales and account management for the company. He will report directly to president and COO, Max Bardon.
“Craig brings more than 15 years of experience and incredible industry knowledge to this position including over two years of building our New York office into the outstanding contributor it is to WhitePages today,” said Bardon. “He has been an invaluable member of the WhitePages team, and we all look forward to his continued success as he leads our overall advertising sales efforts.”
Paris currently serves as the regional vice president of sales for the eastern region and leads WhitePages’ New York office. Since joining the company in 2006, he has increased eastern regional sales by over 60%, grown an outstanding team of 10 employees in the company’s New York office and established WhitePages.com as a top publisher to advertisers and media buyers in New York and the eastern U.S. He will remain primarily based in New York.

In addition, he spent five years at DoubleClick in various sales and management roles of increasing responsibility. He graduated from the University of Hartford with a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications and Advertising.
Paris replaces outgoing vice president of advertising sales Derek Netelenbos. Netelenbos has been with the Company for six years and helped WhitePages.com grow from early stage to over $70 million in revenue. Netelenbos is moving to a broader role with another early stage company to pursue his passion for start-up businesses. His last day with WhitePages will be August 22.
