"We’re delighted to have Artie back at AOL as we continue our transition to an independent public company," said AOL CEO Tim Armstrong.

"Artie’s strong financial acumen, operating experience, and deep understanding of our company and the Internet and content industries make him a perfect fit for AOL. He’s also a public company veteran who helped handle Time Warner Cable’s transition to a public company. Artie will hit the ground running and be a tremendous asset to AOL as we focus on driving growth, value and innovation."

In his new role, Minson will oversee the company’s financial functions including accounting, financial planning and analysis, tax, treasury, human resources, mergers and acquisitions, and internal audit. Minson will be headquartered in New York City and will begin at AOL on September 8.

"AOL has an incredible collection of assets, and Tim has set the company on the right strategic course," said Minson.

"I look forward to working with Tim and the entire AOL organization to help maximize the financial and operating performance of these assets and their value for investors."
