EETimes Group, the daily source of essential business and technical information for the electronics industry's decision makers, today announced the expansion of its Digital Media Development team by key positions designed to support recent and ongoing innovations to its digital assets. Additionally, Brent Pearson, having recently joined the group as Director of Media Technology, has been promoted to the newly created position of Chief Information Officer [CIO] and will be leading the team.

The newly added resources join software engineers Joseph Wong and Ying Zhang to create a best-in-class digital media technology and development team. The additions include:

  --  Mike Lipinski, Web Application Developer
  --  Mateusz Sawka, Web Application Developer

Pearson, now in the role of CIO, was brought on board last spring to recruit and lead a software engineering team to execute a technology roadmap for EETimes Group's media business represented by the EETimes Network of online properties - notably, EE Times, TechOnline, Embedded, and the DesignLines.

"I knew that Brent would hit the ground running when he joined EETimes Group but he has certainly exceeded our expectations," said Paul Miller, Chief Executive Officer. "Brent has already made a significant contribution, having created the roadmap for the integration of our online properties into a digital centric community that we will unveil in 2010. We look forward to his and his teams contributions in building our worldwide best-in-class information media and marketing solutions as we continue to innovate and better serve the global electronics industry."
