David Verklin To Leave Canoe Ventures

David Verklin, CEO of Canoe Ventures since its 2008 inception, is leaving the company when his contract expires at the end of the summer. COO Kathy Timko has been named interim CEO, although no search process is in motion. Canoe, owned by the six largest cable operators, offers a product that facilitates interactive advertising on national cable channels, and it says its footprint is 20 million-plus homes served by its owners, which include Comcast and Time Warner Cable.
