Tech Moves: Ex-Drugstore.com CEO Kal Raman hired at Groupon

Apr 27, 2012

April 26, 2012 at 8:58 pm April 26, 2012 at 9:05 pm GeekWire Awards: Tickets available now! Kal Raman Kal Raman, the former Amazon.com and drugstore.com executive who  stepped down as CEO of Bellevue-based GlobalScholar  last September, has been named senior vice president of Groupon overseeing operations in ten countries in North and South America. “Kal brings e-commerce and operational experience to Groupon which will benefit our customers and our merchants as we set out to become the operating system for local business,” said Groupon CEO Andrew Mason in a statement . Raman will relocate from Seattle to Chicago as part of the appointment. Tricia Duryee at All Things D  reports that Raman is the first big-name hire at Groupon since the company restated fourth quarter earnings. The stock has lost nearly a third of its value in the past month. In addition to serving as CEO and CIO at drugstore.com, Raman worked in executive positions at Amazon.com and Walmart. Just five months after joining Microsoft as general manager of Windows Phone product marketing, former Samsung exec Gavin Kim has moved on to a new job at NQ Mobile. Kim, the former vice president of consumer and enterprises services at Samsung Telecommunications Americas, will serve as chief product officer of the Dallas-based mobile security company. “User privacy and mobile security are significant concerns for both businesses and consumers alike,” Kim said in a press release . “NQ Mobile has the leadership and global distribution to be able to address these issues head on – protecting us and our loved ones by developing solutions that keep our smart device data and content secure.” Armstrong-Owens Jennifer Armstrong-Owens, the former senior vice president of global human resources at RealNetworks, has been hired to lead human resources at Seattle digital image company Corbis. In the role, Armstrong-Owens — who previously spent 13 years at Real — will help guide the human resources efforts of the Bill Gates-owned company. Interestingly, her hiring follows the appointment of two other former RealNetworks execs who joined Seattle area tech companies this week. Apptio named former CEO Bob Kimball as executive vice president of operations and business development, while INRIX named former RealNetworks legal chief, Tracy Daw, as general counsel. And speaking of ex-RealNetworks employees who are on the move, The Atlantic just hired software engineer Michael Donohoe as product engineering director. He joined RealNetworks last June, and before that worked as a developer for The New York Times. GraphOn, a 16-year-old publicly-traded Santa Cruz, California company specializing in cloud application delivery, has named Michael Brochu to the board. Brochu is the former CEO of Global Market Insite; Loudeye; and Primus Knowledge Solutions. He’s also the former president and COO 0f game maker Sierra On-line.
