Seth Rogin

Mashable, the news site about all things digital and social, has named New York Times veteran Seth Rogin to oversee ad sales, branded content and events as the company's first chief revenue officer. His hiring is effective immediately. Mr. Rogin, a VP-advertising at The Times whose various responsibilities during his tenure included events as well as mobile and tablet sales, will now lead a staff of 18 ad sales, events and marketing people at Mashable. Some of his new duties had been handled by Ken Detlet, senior VP-sales and marketing, until Mr. Detlet left for the Associated Press in March. But the company said Mr. Rogin is taking a bigger role.
