Dennis WoodsideGoogle’s head of American Advertising Sales and Operations Tim Armstrong recently left Google to become AOL’s new Chairman and CEO. Google has announced his replacement (staying within the company) with Dennis Woodside.

Woodside has been with Google since 2003, and has been in charge of the company’s operations in the UK. From ’03 to ’06, he launched the business operations group at Google and built up the company’s presence in Central Europe, Russia, the Middle East and North Africa.

Before working at Google, Woodside led operational and strategy projects in the tech and media industries as a partner at McKinsey and Company. He also has background in law as a former editor of the Stanford Law Review, and law clerk.

He takes over his new title as Google aggressively seeks monetization through ads from a variety of products that have not been on the AdWords-serving roster in the past. Recent examples include the addition of ads to:

Hosted Google News stories

Ads on Hosted Google News Stories

Google News search results

Ads on Google News search results

And Picasa search results

Picasa Gets AdWords

Reports say that Woodside will be reporting to Omid Kordestani, SVP-Global Sales & Business Development, and that the transition will take place over the next few weeks. Armstrong replaced Randy Falco as Chairman and CEO of AOL.
